Black Background


Swartz First Baptist Church has recently begun the process of a search for a new pastor after the recent (January 2022) departure of Pastor Aaron Dickinson.  Our Pastor Search Committee’s goal is to seek God to discern His direction for finding a Pastor for Swartz FBC.   



  • The committee continues to meet and walk through the journey of seeking out our next Senior Pastor. We ask you to continue to join us in prayer as we are actively seeking God guidance and direction each step of the way. The May Prayer Calendar will be updated online soon. Time and time again we are able to see His goodness and faithfulness over this entire process. The church's love and support towards this committee has been such a blessing. We would to take time to say thank you to all who participated in the recent Pastor Search Committee Survey. ​


  • We are working on creating a landing page on our website for our Pastor Search process.  

    • This page will do a couple of different things.  First, it will be a place for us to post updates on our progress for you to see.  We are committed to frequent updates.  Secondly, the landing page will be used as a portal for candidates.  We do not have this page operational yet but will have it soon and will make sure every member of Swartz FBC knows about this page.  

  • We have taken a very intentional and serious commitment to bathing this process in prayer.  

    • We have developed a Prayer Calendar that we have been using and sharing amongst the committee.  We want you to participate in our prayer for our committee (and our families), our staff, our church, and the search process. We plan to share this calendar in various forms (digitally, physical copies, through various GroupMe’s and Connect Groups). We desperately seek your involvement in praying for the previously mentioned areas of prayer.  


  • We are working on preparing a church wide survey to make sure we are aware of the collective views of our church body.  

    • We are particularly interested in:

      • Who we as a church body collectively feel we are

      • Who we as a church body collectively feel we should be
