First FWB Church – Salem, OR (Associate Pastor)

Post Date: 11/23

Church Name: First Free Will Baptist Church
City: Salem
State: OR
Position Available: Associate Pastor leading to Senior Pastor
Job Type: Bi-vocational
Contact Person: Pastor Terry Motte
Contact Phone Number: 503-399-9172 (Church)
503-559-3684 (Pastor Terry’s Cell)
Contact Email:
Brief Job Description:

Assist Pastor Terry in the routine duties of pastor for the church with the understanding that Pastor Terry will be stepping down after a year or two and the associate pastor will move into the position of senior pastor.

The churches of the Northwest Association have historically struggled to find pastors to shepherd our churches since we are so far removed from the core of our Free Will Baptist Churches. A number of churches have closed over the years because of the inability to secure a pastor and typically after a year or two of searching unsuccessfully the church would close. It is our desire to avoid such an outcome.

Pastor Terry has been the pastor of this church for 35 years and is looking to retire in the next few years. We believe beginning the search now with plans to transition the associate pastor to senior pastor is the proper approach for us.


  • A God-called man filled with the Holy Spirit is of primary importance.
  • A mature individual evidenced by independent affirmations from peers/employers/family.
  • Education appropriate for the position.
  • A willingness to be a bi-vocational.
  • Someone who can work in an environment where fellowship with other FWB churches, pastors, and attendance at denominational meetings, conferences, and events is difficult to achieve.
  • Someone who can endure months of rain and little sunshine from November to April.
