Pastoral Search

Matthew 7:7-8

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Sarasota Baptist has been blessed for almost 25 years to have Dr. Mike Landry as our Lead Pastor. As he is retiring at the end of this year, we are beginning the journey to find and follow God's will in calling a new Lead Pastor. The first step of this journey is to pray.

The next step is to choose the Lead Pastor Search Committee.  A list of church members to serve on this committee has been submitted to the Deacons by the church body. The Deacons are currently praying over and selecting the seven members and two alternates that will be the search committee.  Once the members have been identified and agree to serve in this role, this list will be presented to the church body for approval.

While the team is being selected, the church is continuing to operate and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit and wise counsel. Please pray for our Deacons as they continue through this selection process.

Below are some of the frequently asked questions about the Lead Pastor selection process and the operation of the church during this period. If you have an additional questions, fill out the question form and a member of the leadership team will get back to you.
Thank you for your faithfulness in praying and for your commitment to the growth and ministry of Sarasota Baptist Church.
