About our Church –
We are a smaller but spiritually growing body who loves the Lord, the Word, and each other. We desire to honor God and worship in accordance with His commands. We need a pastor who will come alongside the church and continue teaching, feeding, and equipping the body for holy living and to carry out Christ’s command to go out and make disciples. Our town is a rural oilfield town of about 18,000 people – largely an unchurched/unreached, “bible-belt” community. We are not interested in a man who wishes to make a name for himself, nor one who desires to remake and reorder the church in his own image or to fit his own preferences. BUT we are eager to learn and grow closer to the Lord and to fulfill His desire for our church in character and deed.
