    Position Description

    The New Hope Christian Church is an Independent, Non-denominational, Instrumental, Restoration Movement congregation with an average worship attendance of 300. We are a Bible-based congregation whose mission is to lead people to be growing disciples of Jesus Christ. Our congregation was established in 1977 and has a strong presence in the local community and internationally through our Faith Promise Missions Ministry.

    The Senior Minister and the Elders are responsible for the oversight and spiritual welfare of the Church, staff, and all related ministries. When fully staffed, the church staff consists of four full-time ministerial positions, one full-time financial administrator, one part-time administrative assistant, and one part-time counselor.

    New Hope’s worship style is contemporary having vocalists and a praise band who lead. We offer two Sunday morning services separated by our Sunday School Hour. Ministry to children and youth takes place during the second worship hour and on Sunday evenings. There are several adult small groups that meet in members’ homes throughout the week. Additionally, New Hope operates a preschool program and after-school care.

    Graduate of a Restoration Movement Christian Bible College or University with
    a Master’s Degree preferred.

    A minister for 5 or more years, experienced in supervising, or working with, multiple staff, and having served a congregation of preferably 300 or more.

    The Senior Minister needs to possess the following Holy Spirit given gifts and
    related talents and abilities (which follow them in parenthesis).
    • Serving, Rom. 12:7
    • Teaching, Rom. 12:7 (Preaching, Evangelism, Missions minded)
    • Encouraging, Rom. 12:8 (Shepherding, Promote Unity)
    • Leadership, Rom. 12:8 (Administration, Self-Starter/self-motivated, Visionary Development of future church leaders)
    • Mercy, Rom. 12:8
    • Hospitality

    The Senior Minister shall:
    • Demonstrate commitment and dedication to the congregation through thorough preparation and delivery of spiritually informative, challenging, and encouraging material during Sunday morning services.
    • Maintain awareness of congregation attendance and personal issues – developing an approach for encouraging member participation.
    • Support all church activities and functions (through attendance and participation as is opportune – consistent with the participation we desire from congregation members and church leadership).
    • Participate in other activities that promote broader body unity and spiritual growth.
    • Keep and maintain scheduled office hours

    In addition to obligatory responsibilities, the Minister is encouraged to participate in activities (family or hobby), other church activities, and community activities. Involvement in “non-work” activities reflects an important balance; promotes credibility in establishing a foundation for relationships and opportunities within the community. New Hope Christian Church encourages involvement within the community recognizing the importance of personal evangelism and ministry outside the church building.

    As Christians, management of our personal time reflects our personal priorities and commitment. As the spiritual leaders of the congregation, the elders and the Senior Minister must be committed to “protect” or “guard our testimony” as the Apostle Paul states. Our behaviors must support our roles as spiritual leaders and we must mutually hold one another accountable.

    Interested candidates should send a resume detailing education and qualifications along with references to:

    David Cahoon Phone: (859) 824-4093 Fax: (859) 824-0046 Email:

    Position Description

    Mount Olivet is a church on the move. Having out grown our current facility we are meeting in the Grant County High School while our new facility is being completed. Completion is expected this fall depending on weather. In the last two years the congregation has doubled, and we expect to continue growing as we move onto our new property. We own 26 acres located next to the “Ark Encounter Park” being built by Answers ,in Genesis.

    We are a staff-led, elder-supported ministry. The elders oversee everything within our church family but understand that the daily ministry affairs need to be carried out by the paid staff. The staff is led by the lead pastor with all personnel answering to the elders.

    Our worship is modern, led by a volunteer band committed to leading people into God’s presence regularly. Our vision is large, understanding God wants His Church to grow. Our focus is outward, reaching out to the lost in a relevant way.

    We are looking for someone committed to growing with us. Longevity in ministry is a priority — because we feel christianity is less about religion and more about an intimate relationship with Christ and with one another.
