Website The Christian Church at West Union
We are looking for our next senior minister. We’re a small town / rural church of 80-100 with a heart for missions. In a small church in a small town the preacher’s actual job description is do whatever needs done. Preaching is a main focus. But it also requires being involved with the people of the church. It means interacting with and reaching out to people outside the church. Perhaps it is easier to say what we don’t expect.
The church board has a Chairman. The Sunday School classes all have teachers. The youth group has leaders. The music ministry team takes care of the worship service. The financial ministry team counts the money. People take care of the audio/visual systems. A cleaning service does the janitorial work. A member makes up the bulletin. Others print and fold it.
We don’t expect the preacher to sweep floors, mow the yard, print the bulletin, take on every responsibility. But we also want someone who is willing to do things like that if the need arises.
The preacher’s job is to be the “face of the church”. It’s more than just a weekly sermon. They need to evangelize. To live an example of how Christians should conduct themselves. That may be as simple as drinking coffee with someone at the local cafe. It may mean conducting weddings and funerals. It may mean counseling the hurting and grieving. It may mean turning off the lights when they leave the building.
Whatever it takes.
