Application for Pastor

Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church is fervently praying for a Pastor to lead God’s people. Mount Zion was established in 1865 and is a pillar in the City of Canton, Mississippi. At Mount Zion, we believe that God is the “Author and Finisher of our Faith” Hebrews 12:2 states, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

We trust God to deliver an exceptional teacher, preacher, and pastor who can: prepare and deliver proficient, biblically sound, Spirit-filled Bible-based sermons; should have strong interpersonal skills; should be approachable, and demonstrate inclusiveness for all demographics within the congregation. In addition, the candidate must be open to new ideas, articulate a clear vision for the church that emphasizes Christian Education, discipleship, spiritual growth, development of the youth, young adults, sustain current membership, and assist with a successful transition process.
