Middleburg church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.middleburgchristians.com
Comments: ​The fields are white for personal workers! Middleburg church of Christ is looking for a full-time personal work evangelist who could serve with our primary evangelist in the prisons, the church, and the community in this area. We are a group of around 100 in Middleburg, FL (the greater Jacksonville area) with an established eldership and full-time evangelist. We're looking for a man who sees his strength as teaching personal Bible studies. Pulpit work in the assembly here would be minimal but would be at least monthly in the prisons. We want you to have a primary focus on personal evangelism, with the bulk of your efforts directed toward generating and teaching personal and small group Bible studies. We expect you to spend about 50% of your time involved in prison ministry and with the men in transition from prison. The man we are looking for would need to be old enough and experienced enough to successfully reach men in the prisons, although his work would also be with the church here and in the surrounding community. We're praying for God to provide a worker in the fields here.

Queen Way church of Christ
Congregation's Website: ​queenwaycoc.com
Comments: Hello from the brethren in Christ who meet at Queen Way in Sparks, NV We have decided to conduct a preacher training program this year (2022). We are looking for a man who has already decided to devote his life to spreading the gospel of Christ. We have no pre set conditions other than that. We have money set aside to provide support to the man. While our first choice would be that he either be single or married without children, that should not cause you to discount any man because of that. We are looking for the right man to work with & train. If he is older with a few kids and he is desiring training as he pursues the life and work of evangelist please pass him our info. The man who will be the head of the training is an evangelist, Daniel Hedges. He has been preaching since 2008. While he has worked with other inexperienced evangelists in the past, this will be his first time conducting a full preacher training program. He will be assisted by many of the brethren in the church who are wise and very knowledgeable in the Scriptures. We will not try to make the man conform to any particular mold of ?what we think an evangelist should look or sound like or a particular presentation style?. Rather, we will guide the man to develop his own talents while guiding him to increase in God's wisdom, knowledge of the Scriptures and how to teach them in order to work with brethren and seek and save the lost. We thank you for your consideration on this matter and any information you can pass along to any interested man.

Battle Creek church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.battlecreekcoc.org
Comments: ​The Battle Creek church of Christ in Rapid City is looking for a minister to carry on the work in a remote but beautiful area in the Back Hills of South Dakota. The current preacher will be moving to Utah to help with a new congregation where his family resides. The Battle Creek congregation has few members and has limited funds. The prospective minister will need additional income (outside support or local employment). We suggest applying with the local school system as they provide full time benefits (health, life and dental insurance, retirement, and paid leave, etc.) for part time work. The congregation would not be opposed to the successful candidate holding secular full-time employment in the community.
