Hello!  The First Baptist Church of Friendsville is a wonderful church family that people feel blessed to be a part of.  It is a church that truly seeks to be biblical in its teachings and in its practice.  It is a very unified church, prioritizing our oneness in Christ over our personal preferences.  It is a church that has had only two pastors (not counting the Interim Pastor) in past twenty-five years.  It is a church with nice facilities, and it is a financially sound church.  And it is missions-minded church.   Pastor Bill Gowder has been our Senior Pastor for the past ten years, and we are working now to have a smooth and successful transition to our next Senior Pastor when he retires in a few years.  The very best way to understand our “Succession Plan” is to go to our Media tab, Sermon archives, and watch the “Mystery Sunday” service on September 19, 2021.  That should answer a lot of your questions.   If you are interested in this position, or know of someone else who might be, please send resumés to Fbcfsearchteam@gmail.com.  Resumés will be taken until the end of March, at which time the Search Team will prayerfully move forward with the process of identifying who the Lord has for this position.  Thank you for your interest, and your prayers, in this very important transition.
