About Grace Deliverance Baptist Church

We have a strong teaching ministry and we believe that if a person applies God’s Word to one’s life, positive changes can occur in that life. We have been serving God and the communities of the Lehigh Valley since our inception in 1980. We are located in the downtown area of Bethlehem City, which is an area that boasts a history rich in culture and tradition. Our congregation is multi-generational and we require a Senior Pastor who can relate to all age groups. Our vision and ministries are built on discipleship, evangelism, edification, and praise and worship (D.E.E.P.) For more information about us, explore our website and visit our Facebook page.

Requirements and Qualifications

We are prayerfully seeking a Senior Pastor who is a person of integrity with a strong devotional life of worship, prayer, and personal study of God’s Word.


One of the main responsibilities of our Senior Pastor will be to provide spiritual leadership and direction for GDBC. Our Senior Pastor must also be willing to extend God’s grace to others, exemplifying the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We are seeking a pastor who will lead by example – being relational, authentic, transparent, and humble.
