Pecos Church of Christ is looking for a bilingual minister to serve in our Spanish-speaking congregation. Pecos is a small west Texas town with a majority Hispanic population. We are in an active oil/natural gas development region about 100 miles west of Midland, TX. Attendance in our Spanish-speaking congregation is about 35-40, and is a mix of older folks and young families. Most of the older members speak little to no English, but the younger members and their children are bilingual. Children attend our English-language Bible classes, and are active with our English-speaking young people.
Responsibilities include teaching Bible class on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings, and preaching at the Sunday assemblies. The preacher is also expected to be involved in evangelistic outreach in the community. We have broadcast a 15 minute radio program in Spanish on the local AM station for many years and would like to continue this effort.
The ideal candidate will be a graduate from a preaching school or university associated with Churches of Christ. Experience in ministry is a plus, but we are willing to consider a recent graduate. Candidate must be fluent in English and must be willing to serve under the direction of the elders of our English-speaking congregation. These requirements are non-negotiable.
Salary and benefits are negotiable.
Interested persons should send a resume’, along with three references, to: Pecos Church of Christ, P.O. Box 1332, Pecos, TX 79772. Resumes or inquiries may be submitted via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “Bilingual Preacher” in the subject line.
