Full Time Pulpit Minister

Goodlettsville Church of Christ

Pulpit Minister (Full-time)

The Church of Christ in Goodlettsville, Tennessee is seeking a new pulpit minister. Our
congregation is deeply rooted in the city with a rich 102-year history. We presently
average approximately 250 in attendance on Sunday mornings. Five dedicated elders
shepherd our flock, with the assistance of a team of deacons and a youth and family
minister. The members of our loving body are known for their care and service for, not
only our own spiritual family but the community at large. Our congregation has a
passion for mission work and a wonderful reputation for our benevolence programs.
Approximately 25 percent of our annual budget is dedicated to these efforts.

The beautiful city of Goodlettsville is located in the rolling hills of middle Tennessee. It
is situated just 13 miles north of downtown Nashville - Music City USA - a haven for the
country or classical music enthusiast (and everything in between). Our citizens enjoy
easy access to the performing arts, museums and local tourist attractions. The area is
also home to hundreds of historical landmarks and inviting parks, with miles of hiking
trails and lush greenways. Scenic nearby waterways and woodlands offer great fishing,
hunting and camping excursions for the outdoor adventurer. And the avid sports fan
can attend NFL, NHL or USL games locally, as well as minor-league baseball and SEC
sporting events.

Our church facilities are situated on Main Street in the heart of the antique district. The
city stretches across Davidson and Sumner Counties, with many excellent options for
public or private school systems. There are also sixteen colleges and universities in
these two counties alone. This community is a terrific place to raise and educate a
family. Most recently, the region is experiencing a vast population growth, where many
new housing developments, restaurants and shopping centers are opening. We believe
our local mission field is ripe for the harvesting of lost souls.

We are prayerfully searching for a full-time pulpit minister who is enthusiastic for the
Lord’s work, rooted in a Biblically sound doctrine, of deep faith and personal
commitment to God. He must demonstrate the heart of a servant, loving all people and
have a strong desire for evangelism. A qualified candidate has the required Bachelor’s
degree, with a major in Bible or Ministry preferred. He should be married and have
evidence of at least 7 years’ experience in a successful full-time pulpit ministry position.
A complete job description may be found on our church website, www.goodlettsville.org.
Applications will be accepted from March 1 through April 30, 2018.
