King Street church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.indiochurchofchrist.com
Comments: We are looking for a Preacher and 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). 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; however, our preference is a person with several years of preaching experience. This would take an energetic person who is ready to prepare and rally the troops/soldiers for Christ's work. 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. 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 jburruss@dc.rr.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. We are currently able to pay about $1,000 per week plus 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).

Blackfoot church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.blackfootchurch.com
Comments:​The church in Blackfoot is searching for a preacher who: - Has a genuine fear of the Lord and also a genuine desire to serve Him in truth with all his heart (1 Samuel 12:24). - Is an individual who holds fast to the form of sound words in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus, coupled with care and patience (2 Timothy 1:13; Titus 1:13; 2:1-2). - Would be a man that carefully teaches in a systematic, sensible way that is understandable, so that his hearers would know what God's expectations are to all people in order to achieve the Lord's commendation that one is obedient and is living a life which is pleasing in the sight of the Lord (Colossians 1:9-10). - Must be willing to defend the truth no matter what the opposition he may be faced with (2 Timothy 4:1-5). We would appreciate inquiries from all individuals, including a single man, although we feel one who is (scripturally) married would be of greater benefit to us. The age of the individual is not necessarily a factor. The congregation here in Blackfoot has been able to pay support (this far to this date) to the preacher $700.00 per week. We feel that we could continue to do that. If the inquirer would need more than that he would have to obtain outside support elsewhere.

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.

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.
