The Coe Church of Christ has an immediate opening for a full-time senior minister who is motivated to strengthen our existing members as well as to reach out and help us grow the church.
Located in rural, central Michigan, our church, 150+ years strong, is blessed to have a close-knit, caring congregation who love to serve the Lord. Reaching out to young families is one of our primary goals; we have a strong emphasis on youth and family ministry. Currently we have three elders and two deacons overseeing, and working alongside, our ministry teams.
The qualified candidate we are seeking will be a humble man with a servant’s heart, have a dynamic personality and presence in the pulpit, and is doctrinally sound. He must be able to communicate easily with people of all ages and genders. Additional abilities include effective preaching, teaching and interpersonal skills, willingness to work with our elders, deacons and ministry team leaders in planning and implementing programs and activities for our congregation and also the ability to solve problems and address issues in a firm, Bible-based, appropriate and discrete manner. A level of computer proficiency is expected to allow communications via social media platforms.
