    Position Description

    Oak Grove Christian Church is seeking a youth minister to work with our youth by teaching our older youth in Sunday School, our younger youth in Youth Church during morning worship service, and leading our older youth in Wednesday evening Youth Group. Our Youth Minister will also need to work with our adults in planning and carrying out a week of VBS during the summer. We expect the youth minister to model Christ to our youth, and lead them to accept Christ as Lord and Savior, and grow in their faith. He will need to also give guidance for others who work with younger children.

    We are a congregation of 60-65 in Sunday morning worship, about half that many in Sunday School. We have about 20 youth of all ages from toddlers to Junior High. We are very conservative, our services are basically traditional, but we do sing praise hymns from an overhead screen, etc. We have folks who sing up front to lead the service.

    Salary is negotiable and we have a parsonage on site that will be available rent free as part of the youth minister’s compensation. Shawn Raley, a graduate of Milligan was our youth minister, and we can provide his phone for you to call if you have any questions to ask him. Having now obtained an advanced degree in counseling, he is left Oak Grove to take a position working with troubled youth In Knoxville, TN.

    We will also consider a weekend youth ministry by a student or student and spouse, the parsonage would be available for overnight use and we will provide financial compensation. We would prefer a junior or senior that might work into a full time position upon graduation. The Milligan campus is about 1 hour 20 minutes from our church building, one mile off I-26 East at exit 37 just south of Asheville, NC. Our building is located at 5 Morris Rd., Arden, NC 28704. Our senior minister is Ric Toney, phone 828-808-5557.

    Position Description

    Frankton Christian Church is seeking a full-time Senior Minister.  The candidate should possess a degree that is affirming a doctrine, belief and lifestyle consistent with the Restoration Movement.   Frankton Christian Church sits at a crossroad in its history and is looking for an individual who would be excited to lead through these amazing times.

    The church is currently without a Senior Minister, although, we have been blessed with a unique situation where we currently have an experienced minister assisting the elders in leading the church (on a part-time basis) in the areas of pulpit teaching and working with church leadership.  We have an amazing group of volunteers who are enjoying growth in our youth outreach.  Currently we offer a youth program for K-12 on Sunday evenings.  For adults we have weekly Wednesday night Bible study and two more women’s Bible study opportunities.  We host the Youth Serving Christ breakfasts on Friday mornings for Jr. High and High School students, offer support and the facilities to the AWRE program for 4th grade students from our school, along with several different special events which are open to the community.  The church is looking for a man who would come on board and join us doing God’s work in all aspects of the church relating to people of all ages and especially young families and youth development.
    The blessing of the current arrangement is that if filling the Sunday morning pulpit is not a current strength of a candidate, but one that can be developed with some mentoring; there is a system in place to allow for that to happen.  In addition, this system would benefit a candidate who has not previously been in the role of a Senior Minister.    Due to Frankton Christian Church having a long tradition of serving the community, the church would require the successful candidate to become a part of the community, building relationships and offering leadership.
    Frankton, Indiana is a small town of about 1800 people located about 40 miles north of Indianapolis.   The local school system is highly regarded in the community and surrounding county.  The Frankton Christian Church is a congregation of about 100 that was established in 1839.    Along with the church there is a Family Life Center that consists of a full size gym, fellowship room and extra-large kitchen used to extend our ministry to the community.  We have the privilege of housing the community food pantry in our facility as well.  On the adjacent property is a shelter house which is used to for outdoor fellowship.
    Compensation will be determined based on candidates experience and qualifications.  Interested candidates are encouraged to send a letter of interest, resume and a sermon video if possible.  Materials should be sent to the Pulpit Committee via e-mail at franktonccresumes@gmail.com.
