BibleSBC Pastorless List

These are churches that have been passed to this list as being pastorless.  The churches listed below are those that have a total enrollment of  at least 300 and/or are large enough to have a secretary. Accuracy is not guaranteed  so investigation is advised.  We pray that this is a help to pastors and churches. Please feel free to share updated information with us. 

Please Note: If a church requests "No Resumes" Please do not send them. They may be discarded, and nothing accomplished. Many churches get flooded, and others are not ready to receive them. When they notify us of a change we will post it. Thanks guys!

Remember Grieving over the loss of a leader, getting organized, deciding on qualifications, seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance  and beginning a search takes time.   Most churches need at least six months to a year between pastors.  Please Remember this as you send resumes. It is the purpose of our list to honor Christ and to assist churches and pastors.

Note YOUR church needs to discuss this and come up
with  a plan of action should this occur in your church.

Last Update:Dec 1,  2017

“We have a pastor; why is our name still on the list?” is a question which bothers us.   We depend on Directors of Missions, church secretaries, ministry assistants, church staff, and church members to keep us informed of changes. 

 Churches often ask to be listed, but seldom remember to tell us when a position is filled. Please Email Us when your Church fills a position.
Remember all information provided to us is Public info
Please Don't Send Resumes to Churches Marked "No Apps"

What Happens If A Pastor Gets Sick or Retires?


Like other people, pastors grow old or get sick and can’t continue their careers.  Back in 1918, Southern Baptists saw  this and set up the “Relief and Annuity Board.”   It is now known as GuideStone, one of the best retirement systems available.  They also insure church properties at competitive rates..


Churches can start a retirement fund for their pastor or staff member for as little as $51 a month, and some disability and life insurance is included.   When a church invests 10% of a pastor or staff member’s salary, the person can retire with dignity, not having to beg for part-time work in order to live.


Sadly, a lot of churches never address this issue, and pastors do not mention it because they don’t want to be seen as greedy. Contact GuideStone for help with this. 888-984-8433.
