King Street church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.indiochurchofchrist.com
Comments: Feel free to send this information to any potential candidate or to any other individual or church who might be able to “send someone our way”.

The church of Christ that meets in the city of Indio, California (population over 80,000) in the beautiful Coachella Valley, is looking for a doctrinally sound, conservative, non-institutional, non-denominational, non-instrumental preacher…full time (preferably). Due to effects of the pandemic on some member’s income and some illness in the congregation, we are not able at this point to provide a preacher’s full salary.

The church here is a small conservative work of 30-40 members of all ages. The congregation has several men able to teach and preach God’s word. The members for the most part are good Bible students who regularly study and teach.

We are looking for a person who can share a mindset of beginning a new work, rather than just coming to continue the existence of a congregation of God’s people. Our preference is a person with a family and several years of preaching experience; however, we will consider all applicants. Since we do not have elders, decisions concerning our congregation are made at the men’s business meeting. The congregation has envisioned the preacher preparing lessons for Sunday morning and evening and teaching Bible class on Sunday morning or Wednesday evening (when not under pandemic restrictions). He would also hold individual Bible studies with prospective and/or new members with the assistance of our members. Being able to motivate the members and leading by example in personal work is an attribute the congregation feels is essential along with Bible-based lessons.

If interested in this position, please send your resume along with the completed attached questionnaire (may be done by email correspondence to jimburruss@outlook.com or phone (760) 898-2902). From those we wish to consider further, we will request at least two (2) audio recordings or videos of your most recent sermons or lessons. We intend to pay travel, food and lodging expenses of a potential preacher and his family if invited to come and “try out” (for lack of a better term). Financial compensation for the person hired is open for negotiation depending on agreed to hours, experience and abilities. Hopefully, a candidate has supplemental income or the ability to obtain some outside financial support. We do authorize a substantial housing allowance for income tax purposes.

Median income information that may be useful to you: The median household income in Indio is $49,551; Palm Desert is $52,053 a year; Palm Springs, CA in 2017 was $50,608

Housing is generally one of the major expenses in the cost of living; here is some brief current information (examples only) regarding housing possibilities:
Small Indio condos (2Br/2Ba) 800-1200 sq. ft. $900-1300/mo. (2-4 miles from church building)
Small Palm Desert condos (2Br/2Ba) 1000-1200 sq. ft. $1000-1300/mo. (10 miles from church building)
Modest Palm Desert home (on golf course) (2Br/2Ba) 1200 sq. ft. $1400/mo. (10 miles from church building)
Modest La Quinta home (3Br/2Ba) 1600 sq. ft. $1800-1900/mo. (6-8 miles from church building)
Nice La Quinta home (3Br/2Ba) 1400-1600 sq. ft. $1400-1500/mo. (6-10 miles from church building)
Newer Indio (3Br/2Ba) 1400-1800 sq. ft. $1800-1900/mo. (5 miles from church building)

Red Bud church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.redbudchurch.org
Comments: We are a small congregation in Southern Illinois currently looking for a man to move to this area and carry on the work of Christ. As a small church we have had our numbers go up and we have had them go down over the years. People pass on as they get older and others move away. This has happened a few times in the last twenty years or so. The congregation began possibly 35 years ago with a couple of men. Both have since passed on. I began working with the church in January of 2000 (over 21 years ago). Our three children were still at home, but have grown and left the nest and started families of their own. My wife will be retiring from teaching in about a year and we are planning to move back to her home-place. We would like to be available for her parents needs and also to be closer to our children. We have enjoyed living and working with our brethren here and hate to leave. But, if we are going to, we desire greatly to get things situated with a faithful man to continue the work. We currently have about 20 members and their family units from two years up to 80-something. If you are interested or know someone who might be, please contact me.

Sunnyside church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.sunnysidechurchofchrist.com
Comments: ​Immediate need as our preacher is leaving at the end of May. Sunnyside is a small farming community in the southeastern part of the state. And the congregation is over 50 years old. We have approximately 25-30 members and can afford only partial support. Although we may be able to help you secure more support. This would be a good work for a man who enjoys a slower pace of life and enjoys working with younger people. We currently do not have elders.
