Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  After twenty seven years of faithful service, our beloved Pastor, Reverend Larry Ashley, has announced his retirement. Therefore, Cosmopolitan Baptist Church is seeking a new Senior Pastor.

We have a desire for a Seminary graduate with at least five years of ministry experience.  This individual must meet the qualifications as described in 1 Timothy:3 and Titus:1. The candidate must be fully committed to serving Jesus with a passion for reaching the unsaved. The candidate must be gifted in teaching, preaching and discipleship. The candidate must have a proven track record of leadership and must be a self-starter.  We need a person who is a team builder as well as a team player.  This person must be unselfish, willing to grow and adjust to meet the needs of Cosmopolitan Baptist Church.
