Children’s Director/Minister

 We are looking for someone who desires to minister to children and young families, who loves the Lord and will complement our staff as we minister to a dynamic and diverse group known as West Park. 

 Who is West Park?  We are a group of believers who seek to be a truly Christ-centered, genuinely undenominational, loving, spiritual family.  We want to bring praise to God through our worship, and to lift up Jesus through our evangelism and service. 

 We seek to be a leader in creating a family-based Children’s ministry in Portsmouth, Virginia.  We believe that parents are God’s original and most effective ministers, and that the church - as an extended family - should support parents in their responsibility to bring children up “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).  We believe that a truly Biblical model of ministry will strengthen families and equip parents to be more effective in their work.  

 Moreover, in an increasingly age-segregated society we seek through this ministry to build and affirm intergenerational bonds.  We believe that God has placed all of us, whatever our age, in His spiritual family so that we might mutually support and encourage each other.  We want the West Park family to be known as a congregation where all ages are cherished and where opportunities are created for mutual service and love between the generations.  

 If you believe you are a capable candidate, we ask that you prayerfully submit your resume to: Paul Woolard, Elder West Park Church of Christ,woolybp@hotmail.com

Senior Minister

Posted On: 01/23/2017

South Lake Christian Church is an independent Bible based church.  As such, we take a strong stand on the inspiration, and authority of the Bible and the autonomy of the local church. The mission of Christ is also the mission of His Church, and while the mission is singular and unchanging, the methods by which it is accomplished can vary and are constantly changing.  

Located in the heart of central Florida in a rural setting, SLCC is situated between several small cities and towns, and approximately 45 miles from the city of Orlando.  We are a church of 200 + members in an area where new communities are springing up that will offer an excellent opportunity for growth in the coming years.  

Our purpose is to encourage individuals to be saved, to incorporate them into the church, train them in holy living, and to provide them with the opportunities to use their God given gifts in order that the church of Christ might grow in numbers.

We celebrate Christ’s presence as we worship Him in spirit and in truth in regular assemblies through song, prayer, giving, preaching and communion.  Our regular Sunday worship currently includes a traditional music service, followed by Sunday school and Bible study and then a contemporary music worship service.

We strive to incorporate Christ’s followers into the church through fellowship activities, such as a special dinner each Wednesday evening, followed by singing and Bible study.  There are regular activities and special meetings for the youth, and a monthly dinner and fellowship for the seniors.  Several times each year, there are picnics and events for church members, friends and the local community.  

Where do we go from here?  SLCC is a young church 20 + years old, with a church building and an activities building.  This provides for fellowship activities, more classroom space and a place to share a meal.  We are also debt free and have been for many years.

We are excited about the future and the growing opportunities to spread God’s word and salvation through Christ.
