Worship Pastor Search

Updated:  February 5, 2019

Our previous Worship Pastor ministered at CBC for ten years. In December 2016, he accepted a call to become the Pastor of Worship and Administration of First Baptist Church, Jasper, AL. Six months later our church began a transition time as our Lead Pastor announced his retirement. The following year was committed to seeking God's direction for a new Lead Pastor and it was with great excitement we welcomed Dr. Josh Daffern in July! We are now re-energizing our search for a new Worship Pastor!

Interested in being considered for the position?  

Please visit https://www.vanderbloemen.com/ and submit your resume through them.

What stage of the search are we in?

  • When our previous Worship Pastor resigned we formed a Worship Pastor Search Team to lead us in the process of accepting resumes and interviewing applicants. The Search Team found two strong candidates but God led both men to other churches. It then became clear as the time neared for our Lead Pastor to retire that it was wise to put the search on hold until our new Lead Pastor was hired and leading us.
  • Our elders and staff have made the decision to engage Vanderbloemen Search Group to assist us in searching for our Worship Pastor. This search firm led us through the process to find our new Lead Pastor and we feel confident in the decision to engage them again as we seek to hire this vital pastoral position.
  • Our representative from Vanderbloemen Search Group has met with our Worship Pastor Search Team on Sunday, October 7 to begin the process of seeking applicants for the position. We are preparing the job description and documents for the post on the Vanderbloemen website.
  • Vanderbloemen has presented the search team with a list of candidates and our search team is actively interviewing them.
 Who comprises the search team?
    • The elder serving on the team is Gary Corrick.
    • The deacon serving on the team is Bob Plummer.
    • The at-large members are Amber Joyce, Joni Isaac, Nathan Poe, and Nate Copeland.
    • Bill Hatcher is serving as staff liaison.
    How can I help?
    • Pray for our interim Worship Pastor, Marty McCall and our interim 10:45 worship leaders.
    • Pray for our choir, orchestra and praise band as they lead us in worship each Sunday morning.
    • Pray for the Worship Search Team as they prayerfully attempt to discern the man God is calling to be our next Pastor of Worship.
    • Pray for the staff of Vanderbloemen who will be working with us, accepting resumes, interviewing candidates, and guiding us through the process.
    • Pray for the man God has already chosen to be our new Worship Pastor.
    • Give thanks for all that God has done in a through CBC over the years and pray for a power move of the Holy Spirit as we move Forward in Faith to impact our community for Christ in this new season
