Preaching Minister

Chetopa First Christian Church is searching for a senior minister. Our pastor is retiring May 3, 2020 after a 9 year ministry here. We are searching for a man who will help us fulfill our purpose statement: “Chetopa First Christian Church exists to glorify God in evangelizing the lost, working towards a mature relationship with Christ, meeting the needs of others, and setting the example for our community.

Chetopa, KS is a small town (approximately 1,100 people) in southeast Kansas, approximately 40 minutes from Joplin, MO, on the banks of the Neosho River. We are proud to be the Pecan Capital and Catfish Capital of Kansas!

We have a congregation of approximately 40-50. We are mostly an older congregation, but we have a good base of younger families regularly attending also. The ideal candidate would bring a Bible-based sermon each week and also teach a Bible study class on Sunday nights. 

Like many small churches, we have done church the same way for many years. We would like to find a pastor who can bring us into the present day of worship without leaving the older saints out of the picture.

Salary and hours are negotiable. We have always had a full time minister, but we are limited in what we can afford to pay. We don’t currently have a parsonage, but that is a definite possibility. 

Direct inquiries and resumes to Joe Wright, Board president,
