Wrens ARP and Ebenezer ARP Churches
We are located approximately 32 miles south of Augusta Georgia, Ebenezer is very rural and Wrens is very small town. We do have a couple of grocery stores, drug stores, Fred’s, Family Dollar, a couple of doctors and dentist and several family restaurants in our small community. However we don’t have Wal Mart, Applebee’s or a Mall. They are located thirty minutes north of our town.
We are just beginning our search for a new pastor after our last pastor Gary Jones accepted a call from Hernando ARP in Mississippi. He had pastored our churches for 19 years and his leaving was a mutual decision. For the most part it was a smooth separation. We are looking for a Pastor who possesses the people skills needed for outreach and evangelism. We will not expect our next pastor to go door to door inviting people to church or stand on the street corner preaching the gospel. However, we will expect our next pastor to schedule a revival (special services), spearhead Vacation Bible School and Homecoming etc. Also the successful candidate will be expected to participate in joint community church activities like the Fall Festival, Relay for Life, 5th Sunday night Services. We need someone who has exceptional people skills and one who can push us to be an active congregations once again.
Wrens APR has a membership of about 27, active about 22. Ebenezer APR has a membership of about 11, active about 9. Both congregations are older. The youngest member of Wrens is 45, Ebenezer probably 65. We seldom have a disagreement.
The facilities of both churches are very old and very quaint-beautiful and in good condition. The manse is located next door to the Wrens ARP Sanctuary and will be undergoing major renovations and repairs in the next few weeks.
Financially both churches are sound and we will be offering a package similar to the one our past pastor had. This will be a full time pastorate with salary, travel allowance, synod insurance, manse, utilities, retirement, vacation etc.
If you believe that God is calling you to a small rural ministry and this is something you would like to pray about or seek further information please let me know.
May God richly bless you in your work for the Kingdom.
