    Position Description

    East Tenth Street Church of Christ in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina announces an opening for the position of Senior Minister.
    East Tenth Street Church offers an encouraging and supportive church family, where the minister serves as a valued part of the team. The love that this congregation shows to its ministers is evidenced in the fact that the church has had only two preaching ministers for the past 63 years. The current minister is leaving after 19 years to take a position at a Christian college, while his predecessor served at the church for 44 years.
    Roanoke Rapids is a friendly small town located on I-95, which offers many local benefits including affordable living, as well as convenient access to lakes, a river, state parks, golf, hunting and fishing. However, it is also within easy driving distance of major metropolitan areas, the beach and the mountains. (Raleigh and Richmond are both about 1.5 hours away; Washington, D.C. is 3-4 hours away; beaches are 2-4 hours away; and the mountains are 4-6 hours away.)
    The church offers a competitive pay package (based on the candidate’s education and experience), including relocation expenses.
    We invite you to partner with us as we make disciples, as we show and share the love of Christ, and as we serve the Lord together.
    Responsibilities in this position including preaching, teaching, pastoral care, leadership and administrative responsibilities in the church. The right candidate will love the Lord with all their heart, and their neighbors as themselves. Candidates should have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, with a master’s degree preferred. Ministry experience will also be a consideration in the hiring process, alongside the candidate’s character and ability.
    The church is open to hiring either a permanent full-time person for this role, or an interim minister who could serve in a transitional role for 8-12 months. Please indicate whether you are applying for the permanent or interim position.
    Please submit your resume by email to Terry Wheeler, Search Team Chairperson, at wheelert@gmail.com; or submit it by mail to:

Prepared for the World

“KCU was more than a University, it was also a home for me. Professors didn’t just worry about my grades, but
they knew about my life, provided counsel, encouraged me, and pushed me to grow. I felt that my education for
ministry was amazing and really helped prepare me for ministry. A lot of my spiritual mentors have come out of
KCU and also some lifelong friendships with fellow students. KCU might not be the biggest school, but it has one
of the biggest hearts.”
