Pulpit Supply Pastor, Berea Christian Church, Adairville, KY 

Berea Christian Church is a small country church located approximately 7 miles south of Russellville, KY and approximately 50 miles north of Nashville, just off Hwy 431. Our worship attendance will fall between 30-40 persons weekly. This attendance has fallen from an average of around 45 just a year or so ago. We have experienced loss of several members due to death and other circumstances. Our gender mix is close to even. I would estimate the age ranges as 60 & over 25%, 40-60 30%, 20-40 22%, 20 & younger 23%. We are nearly 100% Caucasian with occasional visitors of other races, we have one black member who only attends occasionally. Our church has a pretty traditional worship service with hymn type singing although we do vary the content and style infrequently. Our Sunday School begins at 10 am followed by worship at 11 am.

We have an immediate need for a supply minister to fill our pulpit beginning November 29. Your response will help us determine how you may help us with that need. Please share this with Mark Miller-McLemore and I will look forward to following up with him by phone.

 Again, thanks for your willingness to assist us,
