God opens doors. That is His work. God wrote to the church in Philadelphia and said that very thing. “See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it…” (Revelation 3:8) The Apostle Paul experienced this in his own life and he told the Corinthians about it, “For a great and effective door has opened to me…” (I Corinthians 16:9) “Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened to me by the Lord…” (II Corinthians 2:12)
There was some clarity in these opened doors. The church in Philadelphia knew that the Lord had opened their door. Whether they knew the details of the door, we are not told. Paul seems to have been much clearer in his understanding of the open door before him. It seems that he knew what it was and what he was supposed to do.
The Richmond church of Christ in Kentucky is looking for a family/youth minister to motivate, teach, and encourage Christian development that fosters unity among our youth and families. We are an established congregation of about 350 with a history of effective elderships. Located in a university town on the edge of the Cumberland Mountains in the beautiful bluegrass, Richmond offers amenities of a large city but in a small town atmosphere.
We are looking for a strong, Bible-based, family man who will function well as a facilitator. He must be well-versed in Scripture and have a heart for evangelism. He must be a man who recognizes that the Bible is the single and final authority. We want a man who has experience working with youth and families. This man also must be fluent in the social media world as this is the world of our youth.
