Seeking Pulpit Minister
Pulpit Minister (Full-time)
The Church of Christ in Goodlettsville, Tennessee is seeking a new pulpit minister. Our congregation is deeply rooted in the city with a rich 102-year history. We presently average approximately 250 in attendance on Sunday mornings. Five dedicated elders shepherd our flock, with the assistance of a team of deacons and a youth and family minister. The members of our loving body are known for their care and service for, not only our own spiritual family but the community at large. Our congregation has a passion for mission work and a wonderful reputation for our benevolence programs. Approximately 25 percent of our annual budget is dedicated to these efforts.
The beautiful city of Goodlettsville is located in the rolling hills of middle Tennessee. It is situated just 13 miles north of downtown Nashville - Music City USA - a haven for the country or classical music enthusiast (and everything in between). Our citizens enjoy easy access to the performing arts, museums, and local tourist attractions. The area is also home to hundreds of historical landmarks and inviting parks, with miles of hiking trails and lush greenways. Scenic nearby waterways and woodlands offer great fishing, hunting and camping excursions for the outdoor adventurer. And the avid sports fan can attend NFL, NHL or USL games locally, as well as minor-league baseball and SEC sporting events.
Our church facilities are situated on Main Street in the heart of the antique district. The city stretches across Davidson and Sumner Counties, with many excellent options for public or private school systems. There are also sixteen colleges and universities in these two counties alone. This community is a terrific place to raise and educate a family. Most recently, the region is experiencing a vast population growth, where many new housing developments, restaurants, and shopping centers are opening. We believe our local mission field is ripe for the harvesting of lost souls.
We are prayerfully searching for a full-time pulpit minister who is enthusiastic for the Lord’s work, rooted in a Biblically sound doctrine, of deep faith and personal commitment to God. He must demonstrate the heart of a servant, loving all people and have a strong desire for evangelism. A qualified candidate has the required Bachelor’s degree, with a major in Bible or Ministry preferred. He should be married and have evidence of at least 7 years’ experience in a successful full-time pulpit ministry position. A complete job description may be found on our church website, at goodlettsville.org/Pulpit_Minister_Job_Description.
