Why We Love This Opportunity

The Community Life Pastor will be able to help build community through small groups, alpha, and overseeing the NextGen departments. As a NorthPoint church network partner FBFTL is passionate about reaching those who do not know Jesus yet.

Church or Org Description

“Before there was a Fort Lauderdale, there was the First Baptist.”

First Baptist Fort Lauderdale is a church in South Florida led by Lead Pastor James Welch and his wife, Amy. The church gathers at our 7-acre treasure right in the heart of the city!

First Baptist Fort Lauderdale has a rich and inspiring story built around the “Jesus First Life.” The story began in 1907 when a handful of people had a dream to help their friends know God and discover their purpose in life.
They believed the church was more than a building you come to; it was designed to be a community that you belong to. When the church first started gathering and serving its neighbors, the city of Fort Lauderdale was not yet incorporated.
