Funny River Road church of Christ
Congregation's Website: Funny River Road church of Christ - Facebook
Comments: ​The Funny River Road church of Christ in Soldotna, Alaska is seeking a full-time preacher/evangelist to work with the congregation. The Funny River congregation was established in this location in the early 1980's. Currently, attendance ranges from 30 to 50 dependent on the season. The City of Soldotna is located about 130 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula. The Kenai Peninsula is a prime tourism area in the summers and some of the larger employers are the local government with the school systems and a local/regional hospital. The Cities of Soldotna and close by Kenai are each about 5,000 in population and about 40,000 plus in the Kenai Peninsula Borough. Our current preacher and family are moving out of state and will be leaving us shortly. We do not have elders but have several men that participate in the services, classes and other duties. The prospective preacher/evangelist would be a mature and grounded servant of the Lord, hopefully with a family. We may also consider an internship or short-term commitment to a well-qualified graduate of a conservative preacher training program with recommendations. The prospective preacher would likely require outside or supplemental support such as possible local employment. The congregation can provide a good portion of the support as the congregation is not indebted other than upkeep of the building. For more information you may contact Bryan Holland at 907-252-6347 call or text, or by email to: flyalaska123@gmail.com.

Comments: The Washington church is a 65-year-old congregation that has lost many members. I (Don Potts) have worked with this church for 32 years and in this time, I have preached 27 funerals and seen some move to other areas. We can help support a preacher, but he would need some outside support. He can be young, but he must be one who will preach all the truth and oppose Satan and sin. Please provide references.

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.

Comments: ​The Laurel Heights church of Christ is in need of a local preacher for full-time work. The church building is located in the middle of McAllen with numerous smaller surrounding towns, including Edinburg, Pharr, Mission, and others.

We are not able to pay enough to provide full support so whoever we bring in will need to have outside support.
