2/8/2017 Minister/Evangelist

The CHURCH OF CHRIST established in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania (PA) in 1977 is in need of a minister/evangelist who can foster new growth in a 20 member congregation.

Preferably, the minister will have some prior experience in working with small congregations.  Education would include a Bachelor degree in Bible/Ministry.   The candidate will be mature spiritually and in knowledge of the scriptures, a self-starter, and able to work independently with minimum guidance.  The minister must possess the willingness to perform all the duties of a minister including pulpit preaching, teaching all ages, ministering to the flock, evangelizing, and helping in leading worship services. Also be responsible or need to assist in some administrative and building duties.  Spanish language skills would be a plus, as the church is located in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural neighborhood.

This is an ideal opportunity for a congregation looking to send a missionary to the northeast. The building is owned by the church and our annual contribution is sufficient to cover the building/operating expenses, but not enough to pay a full-time minister.  We would contribute $20,000 to the minister’s salary and gradually increase our support as growth allows.

The Chambersburg Church of Christ conducts only a traditional service with acapella congregational singing and the Lord’s Supper with individual cups.  We have fellowship meals in our basement.  We provide minimal support to a native missionary in Zambia.  There are no elders due to the lack of eligible volunteers.  We believe that the men have a scriptural responsibility to take a leadership role in conducting services.  Interested parties should contact:  Chambersburg Church of Christ,  P.O. Box 221, Chambersburg, PA 17201 ,  phone: (717) 261-0835 (leave message) or e-mail: We will request a resume with references and demo sermon from applicants.
