The First Baptist Church of Tallahassee formed a Pastor Search Committee in March 2016 to seek the next senior pastor. The search committee is comprised of nine church members, spanning a varied demographic of the church.

The Committee began meeting weekly and is working through a three phase process in finding the man that God is preparing for His church. Those phases are; The Preparation phase, The Search and Discernment phase, and The Calling phase. Throughout this process The Committee asks the church body to diligently pray for us, the new pastor, and for the church body as a whole.

The Committee believes this is a time for spiritual growth and renewal for this body of believers. We seek to hear His voice in this process.

A survey was developed to help guide The Committee in understanding the attributes that are important to the FBCTLH church body for our next senior pastor. The survey results were collected through May 22, 2016 and over 400 responses were received. A summary of the results will be made available to interested parties at a later date.

The Committee is working with the results and will use them to aid in the selection of the next pastor for FBCTLH.

Please send questions and comments to The Committee via email at pastorsearch@fbctlh.org. Resumes and recommendations are gladly accepted by email or by confidential post at:
