First Baptist Church, Independence, Kan., is seeking a senior pastor.

The church was established in the 1870s. After being an independent Baptist church for about 15 years, the church has petitioned to join the Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists. It will be voted on during the KNCSB annual meeting Monday, Oct. 8, at First Southern Baptist Church, Pratt, Kan.

Average Sunday worship attendance is 193. The senior pastor position is open because the previous pastor resigned to serve a larger church in his home state of Texas.

Our church is unified, debt free, within budget and determined to become better.

Inquiries/resumes by email should be sent to Gary Follmer, chairman of Pastor Search Team, at
