    About LVCC

    Licking Valley Church of Christ is a 50+ year-old congregation located on the east side of Newark, Ohio (population 51,000).  The church building sits on 20 acres and includes a baseball field, teen event center, and parsonage.  LVCC is an elder lead assembly where the elders work closely with the Senior Minister to lead the congregation closer to Christ and visitors into a relationship with Christ.  Beginning in 2018, LVCC’s vision has been to help people BEGIN to know Jesus, BELIEVE in Him, BECOME closer followers of Him, and help BUILD His Kingdom.  Since the inception of the 2020 vision, God has blessed us with 124 decisions for Jesus Christ, a new and growing Life Group ministry (with 57% of the congregation involved), new staff positions (Student Ministry Director and Children’s Ministry Director), and remodeled spaces on the property; the Kids Point Space, teen events center, Welcome Center and Café.

    Position Description

    The Senior Minister of LVCC works closely with the elders of the church, as a fellow elder.  He leads a staff of eight (three full-time, five part-time), and communicates regularly with them.  The next Senior Minister at LVCC needs to be an effective preacher, leader, and organizer.  There are number of things that the church has accomplished over the recent years that has LVCC poised for strong growth and excitement into the future.  For example: a debt free campus, strong mission support around the world, young leaders willing to serve, strong finances, plans for future growth, a history of long ministries, healthy local school system, and a growing number of rooftops just to name a few.  This man is to help lead the church by example and be committed to helping LVCC reach its full potential.

Lasting Impact

“I don’t think I can fully put into words the impact that KCU had on my life. I received a great education and had a wonderful athletic experience, but I will always be grateful for the relationships I made. Whether it was the lifelong friendships or the mentoring as both a student and employee, the impact of the people from KCU is something I will proudly carry with me wherever I go.”

Heather Stacy, Class of 2010
