Essie Christian Missionary Alliance Church Pastoral Opening The Essie Christian & Missionary Alliance Church, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky, is seeking a full-time Pastor to lead and grow a congregation of 35 people. Through the missionary efforts of Miss Rachel Davison and Miss Mildred Rhan, our church has grown from the humble beginnings of a one-room school house to our current church which was built in the 1950’s, and renovated in the 1970’s. Our current congregation consists of both older and younger adults, as well as a mixture of teenagers and small children. The Essie Christian Missionary Church is located in the rural community of Essie, Kentucky, approximately 10 miles from the nearest town of Hyden. Our mission at the Essie Christian Missionary Alliance Church is to save the lost, while equipping believers to boldly profess Christ to a lost and dying world. We are looking for a like-minded, spirit-led, full-time Pastor to lead us in that mission. The ideal Pastor will have a firm understanding of the scriptures and a desire to preach and teach what the spirit leads, on a level that can be understood by all ages. Applicants should be licensed or licensable in the Christian Missionary Alliance. Prior experience as a full time pastor is desired but not a requirement. Currently the Essie Christian Missionary Alliance Church holds services on the following days/times: Sunday School 10am, Sunday Worship 11am, Sunday Evening Worship 6pm, Sunday Evening Youth Fellowship 7pm, and Wednesday Evening Bible Study 7pm. The Essie Christian Missionary Alliance Church has an adjacent parsonage for use by our Pastor and their family. If the Pastor chooses not to live in the adjacent parsonage, an increase in monthly salary may be negotiable. We also allow our Pastor to have outside employment to supplement their monthly income as long as it is not a conflict of interest for the church and our beliefs set forth in God’s Word. Interested candidates may contact the Ohio Valley District Office at and/or the church pastoral search committee by phone or email at 606-275-0672, 606-672-3610, or
