Montgomery, AL - Pastor - First Baptist Church

The First Baptist Church (also known as the Brick-A-Day Church) on North Ripley Street in Montgomery, Alabama, is a historic landmark. Founded in downtown Montgomery in 1866 as one of the first black churches in the area, it provided an alternative to the second-class treatment and discrimination African-Americans faced at the other First Baptist Church in the city. On May 2, 2021, First Baptist Church lost its beloved Pastor, Reverend E. Baxter Morris, Jr. who had served the Congregation faithfully for nearly 50 years.  We are therefore in search of a new spiritual leader for our historic First Baptist Church.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
