It's been a big year for Scoopin'. This is our 26th listing of Scoops. We average about 12 Scoops per post so that means we have posted Scoops from roughly 300 churches this year. This blog only happens when people share info with us. So thank you for helping your fellow ministers stay up to day. Today's a a tad, well, disjointed. But we are due some new Scoops so here we go. AL/TN: I'll start in my favorite state in one of my favorite towns - Hamilton. They have hired a new youth minister. Steven Holt will begin his work there at the first of January. He is leaving the Central congregation in Cleveland, TN. That means they are looking for both a preacher and a youth minister: http://centralcocfamily.com/wordpress//
TN: Andrew Leeper will be leaving the Kingwood congregation in Murfreesboro to work with the Brentwood Hills church in Brentwood, TN. He will be in a role including worship leader there.
TN: In February Mike Fox will be leaving Ashland City to work with the church in Gainesboro, TN. Here's some info on Ashland City Church of Christ: They want a full time minister to work and live with his family in our community. Sunday morning attendance is 125 to 150 with three elders. Ashland city is about 25 miles from Nashville and is a growing area. They "desire an individual who can embrace and adapt modern technology, social media, and contemporary means of communication while keeping true to the teachings and principles of the Christ."
