About this role
Baxter Avenue Church of Louisville, KY is sending out their current worship pastor to a new station of ministry, and is in search of a worship leader(s) to help the transition and continue the legacy of biblical, pastoral worship. God is using this Baxter family to reach people that would not normally set foot in a church building. Being just minutes from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, God has used Baxter to equip and send out pastors, missionaries, lay persons and their families into ministry throughout the United States, and overseas.

If you aspire to be trained for pastoral ministry, be a part of a godly transition of leadership, and would like to learn from and build upon a foundation of biblical worship, prayerfully consider whether you are needed at Baxter. Part-time financial support will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
