Situated between the City of Pittsburgh and the western ridges of the Appalachian Mountains in southwestern Pennsylvania, the Greensburg Church of Christ is looking for a mission-minded individual to serve as a part-time evangelist, with the potential to be full-time.
The Greensburg area has a population of about 19,000 and two local colleges - Seton Hill University and the University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg. Greensburg is the county seat of Westmoreland County, which has a population of over 350,000.
The church in Greensburg has been around since 1974 and currently has a membership of about 30, spanning from families with teens and young children to middle-aged adults, retirees, and elderly shut-ins. We aim to be the faithful church described in scripture - a group of believers that love God and one another, help those in need, pray continually, and share the good news of Christ with others. We want to grow - spiritually, individually, relationally, and in number.
We’re looking for an evangelist to primarily teach and preach on Sunday mornings and teach on Wednesday evenings. We’d also like for the selected evangelist to lead and help develop the talent and abilities among the men of the congregation, conduct outreach and evangelize the lost, and aid in the strengthening and growth of the congregation.
Given our size and makeup, we do not currently have elders. Decisions are made by consensus among the men of the congregation.
