Pastor of Worship and Youth

Would you like to be a part of a church that has more than tripled their weekly attendance in the past three years?  Would you like to participate in what God is doing to change lives in a rural area?  Codell Community Church is a non-denominational church located in Codell, Kansas, which is halfway between the Plainville and Natoma communities. We currently hold weekly contemporary worship services with a live band and have seen continued growth over the past 3 years.  This congregation averaged 30 in July of 2016, averaged 75 in October of 2018, and 96 in January of 2020.  We are at the beginning stages of developing plans for a building project to meet the needs of a growing congregation and look forward to what God has in store for us as we help people far from God find life in Jesus!
