    Position Description

    We are a rural congregation looking to continue our growth in the knowledge and understanding of God’s Word.  Our current preaching minister will be leaving (on good terms) at the end of 2018.

    Though we are in a rural setting, we are situated in a busy area on the Clark/Powell County line. Growth in attendance is also a prayer of ours.  Certainly, the potential is there to positively impact the lives of many in the community around us by sharing Christ with them.  We currently average 40-45 in attendance each Sunday morning and around 30 on Sunday evening.  We are blessed with a wide variety of ages from 1-90.

    We have 3 elders and 2 deacons serving the congregation at Log Lick.  There are also many willing hands that help with Sunday School, VBS, maintenance and upkeep, and many other activities that go on throughout the year.

    The preaching minster’s duties would be focused primarily on Sunday Morning Preaching and Sunday Evening Preaching/Bible Study.  Guidance/assistance on community growth and outreach would also be appreciated.

    You can find us on Facebook and see some of what we do.  There you will also find a link to our website which we are currently looking at updating.
