GA: The church in Quitman is looking for a preacher. They are a congregation of about 100-110 and are looking for a full time minister. The current preacher is transitioning to another occupation but is helping with the transition. The candidate chosen will need to be able to relate to all age groups, as he will be the only minister. “Salary level has been researched and will be at least up to current standards for our size congregation.” They have had elders and deacons for many years. The building have been remodels and added onto twice in the past 3 years. Quitman is a small southern town in close to Valdosta and Thomasville, Georgia. A number from the congregation have attended Georgia Christian School in Valdosta. General expectations: fulfill the pulpit duties full time, teach at least one class on a regular basis, prepare the bulletin, keep scheduled office hours, make visits, etc. They would like applicants to be married and possibly have a family that plans to live in or near Quitman or over near Valdosta. Send information to email@example.com and mark the subject as “Minister.”
