We are a Southern Baptist church in a diverse multi-ethnic community in the Bay Area of Northern California. The mission of Castlewood Baptist Church is to glorify the Lord, love all people, and serve like Jesus. We believe that God has great plans for Castlewood, and we are looking for the man God has prepared to serve as our shepherd for years to come.
We seek a pastor who is gifted at preaching and teaching God’s whole Word, i.e. one who is an evangelizer with the passion, discernment and vision to lead us in accomplishing our mission. We seek an experienced, spirit-filled pastor who can both inspire and equip the body. The man who is called to be a part of this family will have investigated the region, schools, and living expenses here to better understand the culture and challenges.
