Millcreek Church of Christ, near Raymond (30 miles NW of Columbus), Ohio, is seeking to replace our Senior Minister who is retiring. Millcreek was established in 1838, is a country church in a rural community and currently draws members from several school districts. Although rural, the local economy is strong due to proximity to a large manufacturer (Honda) and use as a bedroom community for Columbus. We have a Youth Minister and our Elders and Board provide active leadership. Our pre-Covid attendance was 150 and our modified services have averaged 85 since May with many viewing our virtual services. One of the immediate tasks of the incumbent will be to help plan and execute a return to the family friendly and sociable congregation we have always been.
The Senior Minister will be responsible for spiritual leadership, guidance, and growth of the congregation; represent Millcreek to the community and support the daily activities of the church. He will encourage the congregation to commit to greater service to the Lord by example, teaching, leadership and Bible based sermons. Candidates should be seeking a long term relationship with this Church family, pass a background check, have a ministry related bachelor’s degree from one of the restoration Colleges/Universities and 5+ years experience as a minister in a Christian Church/Church of Christ. Candidates must also have beliefs that align with Millcreek’s basic beliefs that include:
God is Creator of all
Jesus Christ is His Son
The Holy Spirit was given as a sign of God’s abiding presence
The Bible is God’s written word
Salvation comes through realizing the need for God’s forgiveness, accepting by faith and confessing that Jesus is the Son of God, repenting of sin and being baptized by immersion.
Compensation will consist of salary, housing allowance and health insurance.
