Bramalea Baptist Church

This executive search is conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of Bramalea Baptist Church.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Bramalea Baptist Church (BBC), in Brampton, Ontario, is a multigenerational church of approximately 1400 with a congregation that is very culturally diverse but united, faithful in attendance, generous in giving and passionate in serving. BBC values compelling biblical preaching and teaching, desiring to build and strengthen our relationships with Jesus and within the body of Christ. Mission is a key focus area at BBC. We support mission abroad but also have vibrant local outreach into the surrounding community, providing practical support for needs and extending the love of Jesus through authentic relationships.

BBC is seeking a Senior Pastor who is Spirit-filled and prayer-led, a man who loves Jesus and the Church, has a passionate heart for mission and who is committed to the faithful preaching of God’s Word in a way that is accessible to people from diverse backgrounds. Since our city is so young, we are seeking a Senior Pastor who sees ministry to children, youth and young families as vital. The ideal candidate will have a strong ability to relate well to people of diverse ethnicities and across generations.

The Senior Pastor is the appointed spiritual leader of the congregation, tasked with the responsibility for helping people to grow in their faith so they can live out the mission, vision and values of BBC. He will be the primary pulpit preacher, communicator of vision and developer of leaders. He reports to the Elders and Board of Directors, is accountable for the effective leadership and ministry of the Pastoral Team, and other duties assigned to him by the Elders and Directors.
