Walnut Street Church of Christ

Walnut Street Church of Christ has an exciting opportunity for a Lead Minister who is motivated and energetic about leading our congregation to the next level. We have recently experienced a cultural shift that has brought down our median age. We have established a base of involved, young families, and are seeking someone to lead us in continued growth. Our leadership consists of a committed team of three elders and six deacons. While remaining true to our restoration movement doctrine, we are progressively-minded in our methodology. We are constantly looking for new ways to reach out to our community. We have implemented small groups as a key component to integrate newcomers and build relationships. Our contemporary worship includes a praise band with a casual environment. We are family-oriented with an active children’s program. For more information, see walnutstreetchurchofchrist.com.
