Tim Gunnells will be moving to work with the church in Canyon, AZ (http://canyonchurch.org/), which means the church in Athens, TN will be looking for a new preacher.

The Smithville Church of Christ Smithville MS About 60 members is looking for a preacher. For more information please contact Philip Hathcock, 662.315.6853 cell 662.256.2382.
This note is from the elders of the Green Forest congregation. “We are a congregation of approximately 140 members; sound eldership; youth activities; outreach efforts; needing a full-time pulpit minister. The elders and deacons have a hope for a young man; married (possibly with small children); because we do not have a paid youth minister and can afford approximately $45,000 annual compensation presently. Nice building; no outstanding debt.
Poplar Bluff is a town of around 18-20,000 population; good things happening in our community. We hope for a man with religious education; church of Christ college or preaching school; with a smile on his face, who loves preaching the truth in love; loves the Lord, love His Word; loves his wife and children; loves the church. (One of our members is a brother-in-law of Josh Ketcham).”
