My congregation has just began the search for a new pulpit minister. Our previous minister was called to a new ministry opportunity after serving the Lord successfully with us for 10 years. We have been in a transition process now for about five months.
We have an interim minister and are willing to take whatever time it takes for us to find the right person for this position.
Below is a congregational statement describing our church. If interested, email or mail a resume or any questions.
Church Profile Statement
The Court Drive Church of Christ is located in historic Palestine, Texas, in the rolling green hills of East Texas, surrounded by pine and oak forests.
Palestine is a small city of 20,000, the county seat of Anderson County, which has a population of 60,000.
We are a congregation with an average attendance of 150, with a large percentage of young families, and a highly talented and committed core group.
We have five elders, six deacons, and six other ministry leaders. Current full time staff includes a youth minister and secretary.
Our previous pulpit minister recently moved on to another ministry position after serving successfully with us for ten years.
We are a sixteen year old congregation, founded with the desire to serve the Lord by allowing individuals to utilize their talents and Spirit-given gifts; and to demonstrate to the world kingdom living by loving and caring for each other and others as we celebrate the freedom we have in Christ.
We are appreciative of our heritage in Churches of Christ, but honor our commitment to Jesus as Lord and Savior above the traditions of the American Restoration Movement.
Because we believe that the Kingdom of God is larger than our fellowship, we participate in cooperative efforts with other churches. We worship with believers of other Christian faith traditions in joint community services several times each year.
We are actively involved in foreign missions and local community service, with an active food bank that assists the hungry in our area.
We are known as a loving family of God and have served as a healing place for those who have felt oppressed by other churches.
We believe in challenging each other in our study to deepen our understanding of Scripture and the ways of God. We also believe in challenging each other to live a consistent Christian life, one that is centered on serving God and others, not just on self-fulfillment
