2 PastoralProfile Bethany Baptist Church Newark, NJ Spirituality and Vision: Bethany is looking for a Pastor who is deeply rooted in Biblical principles. This pastor s life should reflect the teachings of Jesus Christ and the applications of the same in everyday interactions with members and others. As the spiritual leader of the church, the pastor must have a heart for the deep longings and aspirations of the members of the church. We are looking for someone who models humility borne out of wisdom, a growing spirituality, compassion, a passion for justice and love. The pastor must have an abiding belief in the role of the church as a beacon of light to the unsaved, and be guided by this vision. We are looking for someone who is rooted in the life of the study of the faith, and lives it out with understanding, enthusiasm and creativity as a teacher of the Bible for 21st century application and discipleship. Pastoral Skills and Leadership Style The candidate must currently possess a Bachelors degree and a M.Div. from an accredited seminary, and must also be licensed and ordained (according to the standards of the American Baptist Churches, USA) with five or more years ministerial experience along with knowledge of Baptist policies, principles and procedures. A plus would be to have earned or working on an earned Doctorate. The candidate should demonstrate sensitivity and excellence in counseling and have an open and welcoming spirit, inclusive of all ages, races, sexual orientation and educational levels. Bethany Baptist Church is looking for a good planner and administrator to work collaboratively with the officers in programming, evaluating and improving the effectiveness of church ministries. There should be special focus on youth ministry and involvement. The pastor should be an engaging preacher committed to teaching spiritual discipline and insight that deepen devotion and commitment, competency in equipping the people of God for ministry. The ideal candidate will be able to connect with all age groups and skilled in developing age specific programs. The pastor should be able to connect and work with civic and social leaders on local and national levels. The candidate should also display political awareness (locally and globally) and be committed to connecting spiritual, health, political and fiscal matters for the benefit of the membership. The candidate must demonstrate through accomplishments, partnerships and testimony of previous churches, strong and visionary leadership that will take Bethany s ministry into the future on solid spiritual ground. Personal Qualities: Bethany Baptist Church is looking for a pastor who lives out a life of integrity (personal, spiritual, professional) rooted in the ethical life of a servant-leader. We are looking for a pastor who has the warmth of the Holy Spirit, approachable, possesses a capacity for laughter, able to cultivate a climate of friendship in the church, and conducts a life worthy of the dignity of the office the pastor.

It was also during this first leg of Dr. Howard s tenure that Bethany hosted Fugitive Safe Surrender, a national program that paved the way for some 4,200 people to have criminal and civil warrants adjudicated with the least adverse impact on their lives. By its 140th year of service in 2011, Bethany was poised for even greater witness, with an even stronger connection to the daily challenges confronting the people of Newark. The congregation is enthusiastic about the divine opportunity for service it has been afforded by God s plan for the world.
