First Baptist Church of Blue Hill names new pastor

BLUE HILL — Pastor David Chenoweth has been selected by the Pastoral Search Committee as a final candidate for the pastorate of the First Baptist Church of Blue Hill.

Pastor Chenoweth recently completed training at the Adirondack Bible Chapel Ministry Center in upstate New York. He is married to the former Jayme Brennan, whose father, Jay Brennan, M.Div., M.Ed., is the teaching pastor at First Baptist Church of Dexter.

David and Jayme have four children, all boys: Samuel, 8; Caleb, 6; Levi, 4; and Jesse, 2.

In addition to the training received at Adirondack Bible Chapel Ministry Center, Pastor Chenoweth has an associate degree in ministry and plans to resume his graduate studies at Grace Evangelical Seminary in Bangor and complete his higher education.

His most recent pastorate was at the Pleasant Street Christian Church in Corinna, where, in addition to his preaching duties, he administered baptisms and bimonthly Holy Communion, presided over weddings and funerals, was involved in weekly home and hospital visitation, facilitated weekly prayer meetings and administered the Vacation Bible School program, among many other undertakings.

Pastor Chenoweth’s ministry philosophy can best be described in his own words: “As Christians, we need to allow scripture’s authority to instruct us what to believe and how to live without exception. Only as we are exposed to the full teaching of the Bible will we savor Jesus Christ and be enabled to love Him and live for Him in our culture.

“Therefore, throughout the discipleship process, every effort should be made to keep journeying through the whole Bible together.”

Jayme Chenoweth attended Gordon College, graduating with a BA in biblical history in 2001. When she is not busy caring for their children, Jayme works part time for Global Study Connections, enjoys playing the piano, singing and reading her favorite authors. She loves people, enjoys serving others and is a great listener. She has a heart for counseling hurting women and discipling them to know Christ and overcome their adversities.

Your Pastoral Search Committee believes the Chenoweths are eager to get established with an evangelical church that is Christ-centered, mission-minded and seeks to be equipped to know, worship and serve God better and love people more in all facets and spheres of life.
