The Northern Hills Church of Christ is looking for a new full-time pulpit minister. Our congregation is located in the scenic Black Hills region of western South Dakota and serves the communities of Belle Fourche and Spearfish, SD as well as surrounding areas.
We are a congregation of 85-100 wonderful people who love God, love to study His word and love to sing! Our congregation has a great youth group of 36 young people, from cradle roll to high school, who are enthusiastic to learn and fellowship together. They are active in the Heart of America Leadership Training for Christ organization.
The Northern Hills Church of Christ is also the flagship congregation for the Black Hills State University Campus Ministry program, Yellow Jackets for Christ. We provide the majority of support for our full-time campus minister in this area-wide effort and are blessed with the support of several other congregations. Black Hills State is South Dakota’s third-largest university and our campus program has 25 students who meet for a meal and Bible study on Monday evenings at our campus house adjacent to the university’s student center. They also have a discipleship study monthly for those students who want to go deeper into God’s word.
Our leadership consists of two dedicated and God-fearing gentlemen who direct our shepherding efforts as elders. We also have individuals who head committees that take on the everyday tasks such as education, worship, building and grounds as well as finances and youth, among others.
As pulpit minister you would be responsible for providing encouragement and direction for our evangelistic outreach efforts. This would include preaching on Sundays and also periodically teaching adult Bible classes. As a body of Christians we believe that the Bible is the true and only word of God, that Jesus Christ was His Son who died for all that we would be forgiven and through grace, faith and our daily actions are allowed to walk in His footsteps. We feel it is essential to promote daily Bible study, fellowship and education. In addition, our minister would be the point of contact with the greater community for benevolence requests and other requests for use of the congregation’s resources. We have an office at the building for the minister’s use.
We live in a beautiful region of the country with plenty of opportunities for sight seeing, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, fly fishing or just enjoying God’s great outdoors. Salary is commensurate with experience. We can work with you to provide health benefits and accommodate specific needs.
