PROFESSIONAL OBJECTIVE

Seeking a Baptist congregation that will enable me to exercise my calling as a pastor to create a clear vision for a church in the areas of executive leadership, preaching, teaching, and encouraging spiritual growth among God’s people.

QUALIFICATIONS & MINISTRY PHILOSOPHY

I am dedicated to deepening my calling to the ministry. I am equipped with a spiritual gift for building people, families and communities to further the commission of Christ. I have been practicing in the ministry for 9 years. For the past four years, I have been called to pastor “BLANK-BLANK Baptist Church of Taverville in “BLANK-BLANK”, North Carolina. Amburg has grown spiritually, numerically, and financially during my tenure as pastor. In addition to being called to the ministry, I am also a Fine Arts teacher in the ?????? City Public Schools system in Carson City, North Carolina. Teaching has enabled me to develop skills to build a youth and youth ministry that address the total needs of children through education, recreation, spiritual support and mentoring. My ministry philosophy is that the African American church should not simply be an isolated institution that is only connected to the community because of its physical location. Rather the African American church should strive to be the heartbeat of its community by addressing the holistic needs of individuals and the community in which it serves. The most important needs include spirituality, economic improvement and social justice.

Other than this you might want to work on the use of “I” for the beginning of some sentences. Other than that your content is great you sound like a church will be lucky to have you! Good luck with the set up of your resume the latter post seems to be of more help as far as content.

All the best
