  • OXNARD
West Ventura County church of Christ
Congregation's Website: None
Comments: The West Ventura County Church of Christ is seeking a full time evangelist. The congregation has a routine membership attendance of approximately 35. The group is generally active and involved in the work of the church. It meets in Oxnard California which is a coastal community approximately an hour north of Los Angeles. It enjoys a moderate Mediterranean climate. The members reside over a large geographic area with some members traveling as far as 20 miles each way to attend services. The area includes a broad socio-economic population mix. The immediate area includes a large Spanish speaking population. A separate Spanish speaking congregation meets in the same facility. The congregation was formed in 2006 through the merger of two prior congregations. The congregation does not participate in institutional practices and does not use instrumental music. The congregation was served by two elders until one moved to be closer to family, dissolving the eldership. The congregation has been served by two preachers since 2006. The cost of living in this area is high. The congregation is able to supply most of a preacher’s support, depending upon their individual needs. Outside support may likely be required. Candidates are encouraged to carefully research the area’s cost of living. After prayerful contemplation, the congregation compiled a list of the traits most sought in a new preacher. This is not intended to be minimum qualifications or ideals, but criteria which would make a candidate best prepared for the requirements of this position. The list is:

  Preacher training experience is desired preference with training or leadership program background.
