the pastor/church connection is the primary connection point between texas baptist pastors and the vast array of resources and ministries of the bgct.
Whether providing direct resources for pastoral leadership development, or acting as a connecting guide to other resources provided by the BGCT, we are here to serve Texas Baptist pastors and their congregations.
The Pastor/Church Connection also offers expert guidance and extensive resources for churches in interim pastor situations and, while honoring the autonomy of the local church, facilitates connections between pastorless churches and pastors seeking a new field of ministry.
