Type of Job: Full-time

Job Description: Serve the Lord with us in the beautiful Black Hills Located on the north slope of the historic Black Hills of South Dakota, the Northern Hills Church of Christ is looking to welcome a new preacher and his family to our congregation. With a love of the Lord and passion for outreach our new preacher will be welcomed into our small grace-centered church family to help us grow together. We have asked the Lord’s guidance in seeking a minister that will speak the truth of God’s word, be a catalyst for spreading the word, and use the Bible as the final word on all matters. Our prayer is for someone who is ready to be empowered to lead and dream big. Candidates should have a zeal to teach and preach Bible-centered lessons and not be afraid to challenge our membership with positive, life-changing messages and in-depth bible study. A passion for outreach is a must, as is a willingness to participate with us in visiting the sick and shut-ins and encouraging those who are weaker in faith. Our church building is paid for and is located halfway between Spearfish (population 13,000) and Belle Fourche (population 5,600). We have around 70 in attendance on Sunday morning and are a grace-centered, active congregation with a broad age range. Spearfish is a university town influenced by tourism, outdoor recreation and the arts. Belle Fourche is a ranching community with a focus on agriculture, hands-on work ethic, and the western lifestyle. This presents wonderfully diverse opportunities for outreach. We have an established eldership and a thriving campus ministry program at Black Hills State University, the third-largest university in South Dakota. The position would require working as a team with our campus minister. A Bachelor’s degree in ministry is preferred but we will consider real world ministry experience. Our target salary offering would begin at $50,000 per year with the successful candidate ready to raise between $1,500 and $2,000 per month in outside support. Our goal is to be self-supporting within 2 to 3 years as we once were. Come grow with us!
