Organization: Gatesville Church of Christ
About the Organization: Gatesville church of Christ is a multi-generational church with a healthy number of young families with babies and toddlers. We have left the sectarian exclusivism of the past and are no longer interested in converting people to the strict traditions of our heritage. We want to share the love of Jesus and equip others to do the same. Growing up in the church of Christ is not a prerequisite for this position. The church is looking for a man who can reestablish and further develop a youth ministry that has suffered great loss in the teenage crowd due to COVID and the move of a few key families. Like many of our churches, we went strictly online for several weeks and are just now getting back to regular worship meetings on Sunday mornings. Our in-person attendance is about 100 and growing. Before the pandemic we were averaging around 200.
Organization Location: Gatesville, Texas
