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)

Newman Road church of Christ
Congregation's Website: http://newmanroadchurchofchrist.blogspot.com/
Comments: The Newman Road Church of Christ in Joplin, Missouri, is seeking a full-time preacher/evangelist to work with us as we strive to grow in the faith and to spread the Gospel in our community. A small but long-established congregation that has met in the same location since 1977, we are a non-institutional, non-instrumental Church of Christ congregation and are the only such group meeting within a 60-mile radius. Our regular attendance ranges from 30-50 and many of our members live a considerable distance out of town. We are not currently blessed with elders but hope to develop such leaders in the future. Our building is located next door to a public four-year university with about 5,000 students.

Our ideal candidate would be:

A man mature in the faith, with a strong knowledge of the scriptures, and with a proven ability to teach and preach.

An effective communicator, both from the pulpit and in working with individuals. A zealous evangelist with a desire to work with us to boldly proclaim the Gospel to the lost.

A patient teacher willing to conduct classes for the congregation as well as do personal work with individuals and families.

A hard worker of good reputation who exemplifies living a Christian life.

A caring individual with a love for the saints who will encourage and exhort his fellow workers.

We are currently able to provide support in the range of $30,000-$40,000 per year, which will go a long way in this area thanks to Joplin’s low cost of living. Our area is one of the most affordable places to live in the country, with the median home price consistently between $100,000 and $120,000. Joplin is a city in Southwest Missouri with a population of about 50,000 and with 180,000 in the surrounding area. It is a transportation and commercial hub for the region where Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas meet. Tulsa, Northwest Arkansas, and Springfield/Branson are within easy driving distance, while the Joplin airport has multiple daily flights to DFW.

West Fayetteville church of Christ
Congregation's Website: West Fayetteville church of Christ
Comments: A group of humble people seeking only to do Christ's will. We are an undenominational group of Christians. The West Fayetteville church of Christ is a local, independent congregation of believers who have been baptized into Christ for the remission of sins, and who are committed to living by faith in Christ. We have no affiliation with any organization larger than, smaller than, or other than this local congregation. Only "our like precious faith" (2 Peter 1:1) in the Word of God unites us with other Christians into One Faith (Ephesians 4:3-6). We are autonomous and have no central headquarters or president. The head of this church is none other than Jesus Christ himself (Ephesians 1:22-23). We are simply Christians following the teachings of Jesus and His apostles and followers found in the New Testament. The division of denominationalism is, in fact, contradictory to the teaching of the Bible. We are Christians only! The West Fayetteville church of Christ is not affiliated in any manner with the denominational church known as "The United Church of Christ" or with the group known as "The International Church of Christ". We have an aggressive program of teaching our members from both the pulpit and in Bible classes. Our elders have established Bible classes at the church building twice a week - before the Sunday A.M. worship service and on Wednesday Evenings. We have Bible classes for all ages (including infants and toddlers). Additionally, we encourage private Bible studies in the homes of members and non-members alike. We currently have 2 elders, Eugene Edwards and Bob Fancher, and 2 deacons, Michael Williams and Greg Jones. Stan Caldwell works full-time with this congregation as a preacher and teacher. The West Fayetteville Family works hard to maintain brotherly love and a close family atmosphere. We believe that the Bible teaches that there are some responsibilities and functions which we are to perform as a local congregation and others as individual Christians (Matt. 18:15-17; 1 Tim. 5:16). You will not find a kitchen, fellowship hall, or other social buildings on our church properties. Though we often spend social time with each other in our homes or in other ways outside of services, we do this as individuals and not as a church function. The work of the Lord's church is spiritual (Eph. 4:11,12; 1 Pet 2:9-10). The church is self-sufficient and able to fully pay the preacher his salary.

6th and Meredith church of Christ
Congregation's Website: dumaschristians.com
Comments: The 6th & Meredith church of Christ, in Dumas, Texas, is looking for a preacher. This local congregation was established in 1919. It is the only English speaking non-institutional congregation in Moore County. Attendance is currently about 50 with several young singles, married couples and young children. There is a Spanish speaking congregation with a full-time preacher, Javier Palomares, that meets in our building. We have established a 2-year preacher training program under the direction of David M. Bonner to train a young preacher in Bible study, sermon preparation and presentation, personal evangelism, public speaking, teaching of Bible classes, and in discussion of religious issues. In addition to the opportunities to preach and teach here there will be opportunities to preach for a congregation in a neighboring county. Adding to the preacher's salary the church has a nice brick 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage home in an excellent neighborhood with exceptional schools. Dumas is a friendly growing community in the Texas Panhandle about 45 miles north of Amarillo. Two major U.S. Highways, 87/287, come through Dumas and connect us to within 1 to 3 hours from New Mexico and Colorado. Dumas is very economically and ethnically diverse with farming & ranching, oil & gas, a Valero refinery, a Continental Carbon Black plant, JBS plant, an excellent healthcare system, and a very diverse mixture of smaller industries.
