Pulpit Minister – Job Announcement

Glenpool Church of Christ

 

The elders of the Glenpool Church of Christ are actively seeking to hire our next Pulpit Minister. After nearly ten years of service, our previous minister left Glenpool on good terms to persue a preaching position at a different congregation. We are determined to find the right man who will be a complement to the talents of our congregation and who has a desire to join us in the ministry and good works of this body of believers.

 

The Community:

Our congregation is located in Glenpool, Oklahoma.  Glenpool is a thriving suburb of Tulsa and one of the fastest growing communities in the state. The public schools are rapidly expanding as many new families pour into town, and brand new subdivisions, filled with starter homes, are cropping up in every direction. It seems like every week there is a groundbreaking in Glenpool for new streets, new businesses, new homes, or new schools. Much more information about Glenpool is available at the Glenpool Chamber of Commerce website: glenpoolchamber.org.

 

The Congregation:

The Glenpool Church of Christ is an active congregation of God’s people meeting for worship services and classes on Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings, and Wednesday evenings. A monthly ladies’ Bible class is also conducted. Our physical address is: 12932 S Elwood Avenue, Glenpool, OK 74033. The church desires to grow both spiritually as well as numerically as a congregation. To this end, we strive to develop disciples through a process of belonging, learning, and serving; and the Lord has blessed His people in Glenpool in many ways:

  • We have beautiful modern facilities, and our worship attendance is regularly over 180. In addition to a full-time Pulpit Minister vacancy, we have five elders, ten deacons, a part-time Youth Minister and part-time Office Assistant. Our giving has consistently exceeded our budget for several years.
  • There is a strong sense of belonging in our congregation, and we strive for this in every gathering of the Church. We have a diverse membership of different ages, talents, cultural backgrounds, and from many different communities surrounding Glenpool. We are blessed every week with visitors during our worship services. We have many organized fellowship opportunities for our members.
  • This congregation remains rooted in the Faith and promotes learning and spiritual growth at every opportunity. We have remarkable teachers for all age groups, and our children’s Bible classes are filled nearly to capacity every Sunday. We also have active ministries for our teens, young families, and the beloved senior members of the congregation. We strive to encourage one another in the Faith and to edify each other in Scriptural Truth.
  • This is also a group of believers committed to serving the needs of others. The congregation generously supports outreach programs in the community as-well-as mission programs in other parts of the world. The Glenpool Church has routinely contributed toward ministries involving orphans and other needy children, college age students, nursing home residents, incarcerated prisoners, as-well-as benevolence and disaster relief (as needs arise).
