The Role: Worship Pastor

Paramount Baptist BuildingMeet Paramount Baptist:

In 1958, a group of dedicated believers in Amarillo, Texas, left the comfort of First Baptist Church to plant a new church on the southwest side of the city. With faith in their hearts, they initially met at Paramount Terrace Elementary School to serve the spiritual needs of the growing community. By September 14, 1958, forty-five people gathered to plan future services, and land was secured at 3801 South Western. On May 31, 1959, Paramount Baptist Church was officially organized with 337 charter members.

The congregation of Paramount Baptist Church moved into a new building on November 6, 1960, and continued to grow rapidly. They added a new educational building in 1966 and an 800-seat auditorium in 1972. Expansion continued with additional educational facilities completed in 1976 and another in 1994. In 2004, the acquisition of the Paramount Terrace campus, across the street, added an additional 90,000 square feet of educational space, a gym, a 600-seat auditorium, and an office suite for all staff.

Today, Paramount is a vibrant community dedicated to glorifying God by making followers of Christ through the love of Christ. The church celebrates a diverse and multigenerational congregation, with a strong senior community, a growing young adult population, and vibrant children and student ministries. Weekly services are offered in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Amharic.

The people of Paramount gather in services to hear clear and applicable verse-by-verse preaching each week. Most of the congregation is involved in dynamic Sunday School programs, where every age group has opportunities for Bible teaching and fellowship. Opportunities to minister abound, and a priority is placed on "sharing our story" with others so that they can hear how God has changed lives through His glorious gospel.

About the Worship Pastor:

Paramount is looking for someone who would honor our past with an eye for the future. A blended style of worship, combining the best of both ancient and modern songs done in a modern, singable style will serve the Paramount family well. Our Sunday morning services are guided by Scripture (regulative principle), and the need for fresh passionate expressions of worship.
