There’s a lot to report today:
Let’s start with what may be the major news of today. James Waugh scoops himself with the report that he is leaving the pulpit at Hillsboro to take the work at McDermott Road church in Plano, TX. James has been at Hillsboro for a number of years and his friendship has been a blessing to me personally. This is a pretty major scoop as, when I think of great preaching I have always thought of Hillsboro: J.P. Sanders, B.C. Goodpasture, Batsell Barrett Baxter, Mack Wayne Craign, Mark McInteer and Marlin Connelly have all filled that pulpit...enough said. The McDermott Road church is a church plant that is about 10 years old. Our friend Tim Pyles helped in planting that congregation. They now run about 800 a Sunday I think. Blessings to all involved. www.hillsboro.org
Kyle Macon, the associate minister, tells me that the Owl Hollow church in Winchester, TN is looking and ask us to post it. He says: “This family oriented congregation of 140 members is seeking an outgoing, people-oriented, God fearing family man who has a love for God, His word, and reaching out to a lost and dying world. Team oriented mentality is a definitely a plus and a positive outlook on life and faith is a must. Congregation is centrally located between Nashville, Chattanooga, and Huntsville. If applicants are interested in the position they can initiate contact with the congregation through email (email@example.com) or call the church at 931-967-1336.”
Paul Spurlin gets the scoop that the - Atlas looking for a youth minister as the YM there is, we understand, moving to work with the church at Killen. There preacher is the one and only Van Vansandt and their website is http://atlaschurchofchrist.com/
The Shelby Avenue church in Nashville is looking for a preacher. Joey Dixon has been the preacher there. Call the office at (615) 227-3910;
And on the good news for us front, the Spring Hill congregation has employed Craig Evans to be their new preacher. Craig has been the YM in Calvert City, KY so I suppose they will be looking for someone to fill his role there. I’m happy for our friends and neighbors at Spring Hill in this decision.
