Senior Pastor

Mt. Victory Church of Christ - Mt. Victory, OH

Has an immediate opening for senior pastor; likely a bi-vocational candidate, unable to afford full-time pay (we would revisit that issue as congregation would grow). A great opportunity for a semi-retired pastor, a young pastor just getting started into the field, or for anyone up to a challenge to see God work in building up a church. We're one of only two churches in a town of 500, so the potential is there, we're just lacking that Shepherd to provide a vision, and guidance, to take us to the next level. We have a small Worship Band, that plays mostly contemporary worship music, with the full support of the congregation. Over the last year we have added many upgrades to our church building, with a couple more in the works. The potential is there, as this was once a good sized, active congregation in the community, and we believe is ripe for growth. Is God calling you? 

Contact info: or call 937-441-0995 and/or or call 419-674-7218.
