    Job Description

    Union City Christian Church of Richmond Kentucky is searching for a Youth & Family Minister.

    Our congregation is well established in our community and enjoys a wonderful diversity of ages in her membership. Eldership and ministry staff partner to provide spiritual oversight and instruction to strengthen the congregation and make the greatest impact in the community. Our Senior Minister has been faithfully serving with us for over 14 years. Our previous Associate served for 5 years before moving closer to family in accepting a new position with another congregation in a neighboring state; his ministry was very successful and he is well loved and respected.

    We desire a man with a love for The Lord, passion for evangelism and a heart for people to partner with us. The position we seek to fill will compliment existing areas of ministry and allow us to continue to grow by reaching others for Christ. Although our congregation is in a rural setting we are only 5 miles removed from downtown Richmond and Eastern Kentucky University, less than 30 minutes removed from 3 other universities… Asbury, Berea and University of Kentucky. Our congregation enjoys solid leadership and modern facilities, including a large addition less than 5 years old.
