CALIFORNIA
  • HUNTINGTON BEACH
Huntington Beach church of Christ
Congregation's Website: www.hbchurch.org
Comments: ​The church in Huntington Beach, California: would like to offer what might be called an internship for a man who has already been through some training program or significant fill-in preaching, etc. Primarily we want him to understand that this is not a training program with classes etc. Therefore he needs to already have a decent background with foundational knowledge, sermon preparation and so forth. We will help with the continued development of these basics, however. Plus there will be discussion time each week on the work of an evangelist and any relevant material. We are willing to commit up to one year, but realize it may need to be shorter for the intern. He will need to be available for about 16 to 20 hours a week. He will do some preaching and teaching a class and working with us in personal evangelism. We are unable at this time to provide full support, but we will provide his rent and utilities for a small apartment. He will have time to do what he needs to for living wages or work on a degree or further education. If married please note that the apartment will probably not have room for children. We do have some part-time work ideas available. There will be other details he and we will need to work out. If you need to leave a message please give me a good time and your time zone for returning your call.

  • INDIO
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).

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.
