Worship Director –
The Worship Director will provide leadership and direction to the worship ministries of Charlton Baptist Church as we fulfill our mission and objectives. The Worship Director will be the “producer” of each worship service and special programs. Although the senior pastor is the “director” in terms of setting the theme and overall direction, the Worship Director will oversee and coordinate all the details that service encompasses. The Worship Director will be equipped to build and encourage teams to use their musical abilities to lead the church in worship, while providing direction and expertise to facilitate corporate worship by leading and training adult/teen teams, church choir, and special presentations. If interested, go to our website, CharltonBaptist.org for a full description and directions to apply.
The Baptist Church of Perry is an evangelical rural local church in a beautiful area of Western New York. We take seriously our privilege to glorify God by enjoying His gifts together; His Son, His Spirit, His Word, and His Gospel. We prize correct doctrine (tending towards reformed theology), our freedom in Christ (minimizing legalism), our unity as the Body of Christ (even in our business meetings), our ministry one to another (high proportion of involved members in ministries), and our times of fellowship and prayer. We are committed to keeping a large missions budget (27% of our church budget goes to our 17 missionary couples). We communicate actively with our missionaries weekly to be able to pray for them which they constantly tell us is unique among their supporting churches. We are privileged to be made up of a variety of ages, intellectual abilities, and educational levels. We are not a racially diverse congregation due to the demographic make-up of the community. We are sometimes discouraged that we are not growing in numbers. Our dress has become on average more casual over time. We enjoy blended worship styles together; our occasional a Capella hymn verse sounds pretty good. We offer children’s ministry in the form of Sunday School, AWANA, and Youth Group. We find our faith and confidence in God’s provision for us to be solid as we face trials together of lost loved ones, a darkening culture around us, and this first pastoral transition in 27 years.
We anticipate that our Pastor will have some giftedness in preaching as a main task but will also come with some enthusiasm for visitation and for challenging us in areas like evangelism. We will view him as a fellow laborer in the Kingdom in which we each serve an essential role. We would love to enjoy a closeness with his wife and family. A Pastor with young children might help us reach younger families. We would also prefer to have our next Pastor called to serve with us here in Perry for a long time, God willing; one who waits on and relies on God in these challenging times while promoting faith that rests on His Spirit rather than ourselves.
Our constitution expresses that our Pastor shall be a competent preacher full of the Spirit, be a wise leader, be devoted to prayer and the study of the Word and hold doctrinal convictions consistent with the Confession of Faith and acceptable to the Elders. A Pastor shall preach and equip the saints for the work of ministry. He shall provide for the ordinances, weddings, funerals, pastoral counseling, and ministry to the sick and dying. He may be a member of all boards and committees as needed. As a chief Elder, a Pastor shall be responsible to lead the Elders of the church in fulfilling together their duties as a voting member of the Elders, including directing the affairs of the church, consulting together regarding doctrinal questions that arise, pursuing our purpose as a church, assessing our shortcomings, and protecting our unity. The Elders assist in the administration of church ordinances and share pastoral responsibility for the congregation.

Posting Date: 6/2017
Long Plain Baptist Church is a small rural church that has been in operation since 1795. It sits in the outskirts of the town of Acushnet on the corner of Route 105 and Main Street. The present building, which is the third such facility, houses the church and our Nursery School (3-4 year olds). The building was designed to function more as a school than a church. The Nursery School operates on the second floor, while the church is in the basement on the first level. A third floor is used for classes on Sunday morning and during the week by the Awana program or Youth Group. It is a functional building with events, meals, and ministries held in the basement level sanctuary which has a kitchen.
Our church vision is to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge and holiness, and to equip every member to serve Christ. To promote spirituality and to sustain worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines as directed by Christ. The application of the biblical truths to every believer. To promote the advancement of the Gospel in every living room of every neighborhood. Affiliation with other Baptist and Reformed churches to better prepare believers to “take up their cross” in the world. The continued discipleship of youth and adults, fostering spiritual growth and evangelism.
