2/27/2014 Evangelist

Thank you for your interest in being an Evangelist in Belle Plaine, KS. We believe that the time has come to refocus our efforts in reaching our community for Christ. God has blessed us with many opportunities and we are trying to find the right man / couple to help us in this task. We are looking for someone to make disciples and not just preach and teach at the church building. Although preaching is important, we feel that what we need most is someone to go out into the community and lead the lost to Christ. And then teach these new disciples to continue to do the same with their family and friends. Part of the job will be preaching and you will be asked to do that regularly, but this is not the majority of what we expect. Office hours will not help in the areas we need most. We do not mean to discourage deep study of God’s Word. In fact, we expect that very thing. But we are encouraging our leaders to lead by example and not just words and teaching.

Thank you for taking the time to check us out and we request your serious prayer over your decisions and God’s Will for our congregation and for His kingdom wherever you end up! God bless you as you seek His will! Belle Plaine, KS church of Christ, PO Box 427, Belle Plaine, KS, 67013, Contact: Ed Burrows email: eburrows72@gmail.com Cell: 316.655.3530.
