The First Baptist Church of Beverly, MA is seeking a full-time interim minister! Read the description below for more details, and if interested, contact


First Baptist Church in Beverly, a progressive and welcoming Christian community, is seeking an Interim Minister.  The Interim Minister will work with Reverend Julie Flowers, FBC’s current settled pastor, our current part-time virtual ministry associate Reverend Jaimie Crumley, and part-time congregation engagement associate Daniel Johnson during the search for a full-time associate minister.

Reverend Julie Flowers will take a Sabbatical from January through March 2022.

Responsibilities of the Interim Minister include preaching as part of a three-person rotation; pastoral care and visitation, church administration, education and other duties as requested. The specialized work of the interim period–congregational self-study and envisioning the future– was completed in March 2020 but not acted upon due to the pandemic. The church will begin its search for a full-time settled associate minister in November 2021.

While preference is for a full-time interim, FBC Beverly will consider the right part-time candidate. The church has returned to in-person worship and activities and assumes the Interim Minister will live in the Beverly, MA, area.

FBC is a welcoming and affirming congregation with a heart for mission and social justice. The ministerial staff currently consists of a senior minister and a part-time virtual ministry associate who is based in California.
