CALIFORNIA
  • OXNARD
West Ventura County church of Christ
Congregation's Website: None
Comments: The West Ventura County Church of Christ is seeking a full time evangelist. The congregation has a routine membership attendance of approximately 35. The group is generally active and involved in the work of the church. It meets in Oxnard California which is a coastal community approximately an hour north of Los Angeles. It enjoys a moderate Mediterranean climate. The members reside over a large geographic area with some members traveling as far as 20 miles each way to attend services. The area includes a broad socio-economic population mix. The immediate area includes a large Spanish speaking population. A separate Spanish speaking congregation meets in the same facility. The congregation was formed in 2006 through the merger of two prior congregations. The congregation does not participate in institutional practices and does not use instrumental music. The congregation was served by two elders until one moved to be closer to family, dissolving the eldership. The congregation has been served by two preachers since 2006. The cost of living in this area is high. The congregation is able to supply most of a preacher’s support, depending upon their individual needs. Outside support may likely be required. Candidates are encouraged to carefully research the area’s cost of living. After prayerful contemplation, the congregation compiled a list of the traits most sought in a new preacher. This is not intended to be minimum qualifications or ideals, but criteria which would make a candidate best prepared for the requirements of this position. The list is:

  Preacher training experience is desired preference with training or leadership program background.

  Personal Work (Evangelism) ability/drive with concern for the lost is a fundamental requirement

  His preaching should be based on sound scriptural doctrine

  He should have the ability to teach with good communication skills

  Experienced at a congregation w/o an eldership, but desiring to get elders established through
  training/preparation

  Married with children would give better understanding of family relationships

  Currently active in doing home Bible studies

Newman Road church of Christ
Congregation's Website: http://newmanroadchurchofchrist.blogspot.com/
Comments: The Newman Road Church of Christ in Joplin, Missouri, is seeking a full-time preacher/evangelist to work with us as we strive to grow in the faith and to spread the Gospel in our community. A small but long-established congregation that has met in the same location since 1977, we are a non-institutional, non-instrumental Church of Christ congregation and are the only such group meeting within a 60-mile radius. Our regular attendance ranges from 30-50 and many of our members live a considerable distance out of town. We are not currently blessed with elders but hope to develop such leaders in the future. Our building is located next door to a public four-year university with about 5,000 students. Our ideal candidate would be: ? A man mature in the faith, with a strong knowledge of the scriptures, and with a proven ability to teach and preach. ? An effective communicator, both from the pulpit and in working with individuals. ? A zealous evangelist with a desire to work with us to boldly proclaim the Gospel to the lost. ? A patient teacher willing to conduct classes for the congregation as well as do personal work with individuals and families. ? A hard worker of good reputation who exemplifies living a Christian life. ? A caring individual with a love for the saints who will encourage and exhort his fellow workers. We are currently able to provide support in the range of $30,000-$40,000 per year, which will go a long way in this area thanks to Joplin?s low cost of living. Our area is one of the most affordable places to live in the country, with the median home price consistently between $100,000 and $120,000. Joplin is a city in Southwest Missouri with a population of about 50,000 and with 180,000 in the surrounding area. It is a transportation and commercial hub for the region where Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas meet. Tulsa, Northwest Arkansas, and Springfield/Branson are within easy driving distance, while the Joplin airport has multiple daily flights to DFW.
