Mineola First Christian Church, established in 1902, is nestled in East Texas about 80 miles east of Dallas and 25 miles north of Tyler. Mineola Proper is approximately 5,000 people, but serves an area of about 20,000 from surrounding communities. Although this has largely become a retirement community, we see people moving out of large metropolitan areas to give their children good schools in a more wholesome environment. Our church is composed of mostly retirees who are a conservative Bible based fellowship of believers.
We are searching for a senior pastor, preferably ordained. Since our church is small, we have only one pastor; we need someone who is well-rounded in all areas of ministering. We expect sound Biblical preaching and teaching, leadership, and willingness to engage the congregation on a personal level, not just at Sunday services. Although our Elders do an outstanding job with their shepherding groups, no one can replace the care and concern of a good pastor.
About Mineola First Christian Church
First Christian Church is known for its friendly and loving spirit as well as its outreach to the community. With the present Covid challenges, our attendance has dropped in recent months but our average attendance is still fifty to sixty each Sunday. We are socially distancing and wearing masks. Our sanctuary was updated a year ago with new paint, carpet and new pews. While renovation was taking place, we had services in Fellowship Hall. There is a parsonage available for our new minister and family, if desired. It is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home of 2000 sq ft in good condition with double garage.
