Time for more Scoops. Remember, there is tens of thousands of congregations out there, we don’t know everyone and everything even about the ones we know well. This is just the “want ads,” you kick the tires on your own. And, please, a little help here: let us know of any church you know looking. Regardless of size or location, let’s help each other brothers. Send Scoops to TJI@TheJenkinsInstitute.com.

And, finally this note from Chad Loveless might be helpful to you: “I am blessed to preach part-time but it doesn’t pay the bills. There may be other preachers out there who need a part-time job. The U.S. Census is hiring until Summer of 2020. In Nashville where I live it pays $17 per hour - the pay could be more or less depending on where you live. There may be some in your congregations who have been praying for a part-time position - well, if you are 18 or older and can pass a background check - you’ll be offered a job if your application meets the needs of the Bureau. Until the 1880 Census, this job was done by U.S. Marshall’s - this is the first year we’ll use an I-pad. Go to: 2020census.gov/jobs to sign up.” To learn more Chad gives his number: 615-828-0127.
