Church / Organization Description:
 Burkesville First Christian Church is looking for a full time minister. Burkesville is a sleepy little town of 2,000 situated on the Cumberland River in South Central Kentucky. We are a community oriented church with a strong, and growing, youth program. We also present many activities that include the public (ex. plays, charity motorcycle ride, missions, and a large Vacation Bible School). We are always looking to expand our community outreach activities. This is a great place to raise a family. A minister with a wife as a partner, especially if she loves youth ministry, is what we are praying for. We have a very nice parsonage and, we feel, a competitive employment package, especially for a small church in a small town. We have great local schools, a great community and we are confident God is sending us a loving family to minister to our church.
