The church of Christ located in State College, Pa is seeking a dynamic, full time evangelist and preacher, eager to help meet the needs of our congregation while assisting in the spreading of the Good News to the surrounding community. We are a congregation of approximately 35 looking to grow both spiritually and numerically. We are dedicated to the New Testament pattern in all areas of doctrine and practice of the church body, as well as in the lives of our members. State College is the home of the Pennsylvania State University main campus with over 47,000 students. We currently have no elders or deacons, and are at present being led by the active male members of the congregation.
The ideal candidate should have an in-depth knowledge of God’s Word, hold fast to biblical truths, and be able to effectively communicate those truths for the edification of the congregation and growth of the church through weekly sermons and bible classes. He should also be able to perceive and dismantle false-doctrine when confronted with it. Additionally, he should be sensitive to cross-cultural issues, relate well to young people and be effective in handling family and marriage issues. It is preferred, but not required, that applicants have preaching experience, and are married with children. An individual with a Bible degree from a Christian university is a plus. Under the oversight of the men of the congregation, he (and his family) should be active in church ministries and in the lives of individual members of the congregation.
If you would like to be considered for this position, please submit your resume, cover letter, three references, audio or video media of two sermons, and a concise statement (1-2 pages) that characterizes your current ministry efforts and style. A competitive, negotiable salary, commensurate with experience and education will be offered. ($45k-$55k)
