    Position Description

    We are looking for a part-time preaching minster for Sunday Morning preaching and Sunday Evening preaching/Bible Study.  We are a small, rural congregation aged from 2 yrs. to 90.  We usually have around 45 in attendance for Sunday mornings and 30 for Sunday evenings.

    We offer a traditional worship service with the singing of the hymns, prayer, communion, preaching the gospel, and the invitation (utilizing the plan of salvation).

    We have done some community outreach in the past, but would like additional guidance in order to help grow the Kingdom.

    The congregation uses mostly KJV or NKJV to follow the speaker.

    Our previous minister stepped down in December of 2018 to finish the work necessary to become a Bible College professor.

    No parsonage available.

    Please contact me by email or phone with additional questions.  You may mail or e-mail your resumes.

    Thank you

    • Continue with training/Seminars, conferences, visit other churches to expand ideas, excitement, and ministries skills
      • Shared Minister Areas:
      • Although Children’s Ministry is the primary focus, the Children’s Minister will also share responsibilities as part of the pastoral staff which will include: hospital visits, home visits, funeral visitations, church events, church meetings, staff/elder meetings, speaking on stage, planning and participating in ministries and events designed for the church family as a whole, etc. This will require the Children’s Minister to be able and open to work along side all staff members with a willingness to accommodate and help where needed.
      • Qualifications:
      • Leadership is looking for someone with high energy, who can create an engaging place and space for children, good communication skills to parents and leadership, knowledge of security protocols, a “take home element” to ministry, a simple but effective programming which will draw families to Bethany.

    Position Description

    Berea Christian Church Children’s and Family Minister

    God has led us to fully invest in our children and families at Berea.  This will be the first position of its kind in our church’s history.  We are excited to bring in a new staff member that will pour the love of Jesus into the lives of those here at Berea and reach outside of Berea into the community.  In the past, this position was part-time and more of an administrative position.  The new, expanded role will allow the ministry to be more connected to the overall vision and mission of the church.   It will also allow the staff to be more cohesive in all aspects of our ministry.


    This position comes with an exciting new opportunity as well.  Beginning in March of 2019 we have “adopted” a local elementary school. This is a low-income school with little to no parent involvement and many needs.  We have worked with the school corporation and administration to create opportunities for volunteers from the church to work with students during the school day.  We pray that God provides many other opportunities with that relationship ahead. Part of this position will be to foster the relationship with the school, coordinate the volunteers working with the school and be an excellent communicator between the school and the church.

Investment of Time, Prayer, and Love

“I’ll never forget how the Bible and Ministry professors at KCU cared about me as a person. They didn’t just see me
as a student number. They invested time, prayer, and love into my life and my ministry, and I’m eternally thankful
for their influence.”

Sean Plank, Class of 2010
