Big Canoe Chapel is prayerfully seeking a Senior Pastor. We have a rich history in the Big Canoe Community located in Georgia’s foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. As we move forward into the future God has for our multi-denominational Chapel, we seek a Senior Pastor who will grow with us, guide us, and keep our focus on the Lord.

Latest Updates

The Senior Pastor Search Committee (SPSC) appointed by the Board of Trustees began working at their first meeting together on January 10, 2023. During the past months, the SPSC has collected data from the church records and the Big Canoe POA, polled the people of the congregation and reviewed the BOT church assessment survey. Committee members have sought candidates from many sources, reviewed sermons online, listened to sermons in person, and been in conversation with possible candidates. Reactions to viewed sermons have been discussed and evaluated with Big Canoe Chapel in mind. This work continues.

Our Big Canoe Chapel website currently profiles the Key Responsibilities and Characteristics desired of a Senior Pastor which have been developed by the SPSC in response to Chapel needs and congregational input. Should you desire to recommend a pastor for consideration, please review this page. You will find an address for your recommendation whether you use the post office or email. The committee would welcome your input. Meanwhile, we ask you to pray for us and respect the need to maintain confidentiality in our process.
