Description:
My name is Daniel Freeman and it’s my interest to find a congregation doctrinal and sound in faith and practice. I love the Lord’s church and will always fervently from the heart to be the best preacher I can be wherever I have the privilege to serve. I am very fervent to practice evangelism and teach others to do so as well. I would prefer to work under the oversight of qualified elders but that isn’t the only way I would need to be employed. I would certainly want the men in leadership without elders to be spiritually mature and are diligent to follow the whole counsel of God. If you are seeking a doctrinally sound preacher who loves the Lord and the church please consider me in your search. I will provide you if contacted with a resume, references and CD of recent sermons. I would love to come and teach and preach for the congregation if so desired.
In His Love, Daniel Freeman

Preferred Geographic Region(s):
Would prefer, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi. I do not restrict myself. Any state is in my consideration.

Education:
I have two degrees in the Bible from Lubbock Christian University. I have a BA in Bible and also a Master’s degree in Bible and Ministry.

Work Experience:
I have 18 years’ experience preaching and teaching. teaching I have preached at congregations in Arizona, Nevada, Oklahoma, Colorado and Texas. I also have been involved with missionary works out of the United States.

Marital Status/ Family:
Married to a wonderful supportive Christian wife.

Description:
Mark 1.14-15 and Ephesians 4.11-13 are the foundations of my ministry. The Gospel is God’s story of redemption in Jesus Christ continually breaking in though the preaching and living of the Gospel. As a minister, my task is to show how the Gospel connects to life and equip others for works of service for the building up of the body of Christ. Practically speaking, investing my time in the lives of seekers and focusing on the maturity of believers is often a challenging tension in my life. I have good energy, am in good health and have a passion for redemptive relationships.
I enjoy creative activities and helping others to tap into their creativity. It is necessary to persuade and motivate people to understand the people we are trying to reach.
I enjoy working effectively with people and helping them to find their own talents and gifts.

My philosophy of ministry is rooted in the following values:
• Enthusiasm for the Gospel and connecting with people.
• Preaching and teaching God’s Word with clarity and hope.
• Helping others discover and use their gifts to the glory of God
• Seeking to understand culture and how to connect with others.
• Patiently working with others in a spirit of humility and kindness
• God’s grace is sufficient and filled with hope in every circumstance.

08/1989 to 05/1996

Pulpit Minister
Linder Road church of Christ - Meridian, ID
I was responsible for teaching classes, forming curriculum for Sunday School and leading evangelism. We began with 20 members and grew to 200 members. I led an early morning Men's Prayer and Study group. Our membership was scattered over a wide area and faced many challenges due to poor teaching in the past.

05/1996 to 05/2004

Cardinal Drive church of Christ - Rolling Meadows, IL
I was responsible for teaching classes and leading evangelism. We began a small group ministry to maximize our effectiveness. The congregation was spread over wide geographical area so we had to become flexible in our methodology. I taught classes at the building on Sunday and Wednesday. I also taught two small group studies. One was on Sunday evenings in homes. The other group was Thursday nights in various homes. This group was younger (20-35 years old). Both groups had many questions about Scripture and Christian practice. It was a wonderful challenge.

05/2005 to Current

Central church of Christ - Henderson, KY
We moved to Henderson in late May, 2005. I was responsible for teaching classes, producing a newsletter and leading evangelism and visitation. I taught classes at the building on Sunday and Wednesday. The church had a very questionable reputation in the community because of conflicts in the past. We agreed it was necessary to put a better face toward the community. I was allowed to work with the
local Ministerial Alliance. I became a Court Appointed Special Advocate to work with families and children in the judicial system. The church had many questions about Scripture and Christian practice due to unclear and inadequate teaching and preaching in the past. We began in a storefront downtown and finally built a new multi-purpose building that conforms to our needs.

Description:
Greetings Brethren
My name is Vance S. Davis,

I have preached faithfully for 34 years and am looking for a congregation that loves Jesus and His Word; that wants enthusiasm, leadership, sound Biblical teaching and preaching, love, personableness, office management abilities, computer literacy and sermons that edify, encourage and empower the people of God.

I am a highly motivated, high-energy gospel preacher of 34 years and US Army veteran with 17 years military service, who is seeking a congregation that wants to grow instead of the status quo. If it's leadership, motivation, counsel, guidance and teaching, then I may be the man to fill the pulpit where you are. If you're open for evangelism, leadership and Biblical training, these are my strong points.

My ministry is that of the Word. To reprove (bring to the light) rebuke (to admonish because of the light) and exhort (to point the way the light is going); to teach with all long suffering, and to constantly be about the building up of the body of Christ; to assist the shepherds of the flock in the feeding and equipping of the saints; to advise and admonish and counsel with the leaders and the church for the benefit of the body; in other words, A SERVANT FOR CHIRST for the building up of the local body of Christ with a world view for Christ.

Evangelism is one of my strongest points, having been a full-time instructor of the Fishers of Men Evangelism Training course for over 5 years. I have personally taught/trained over 1,000 Christians to carry the message of Christ to this lost and dying world, and believe I would be an asset to the brethren where you are.

I believe it is the work of the elders and evangelist to equip the saints for the works of service to which they have been called by the Lord. And, as we already know, we were called to "go make disciples of all nations" and to "baptize them into the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." The problem is, not many, if any are going! I don't believe, until we have adequately trained the church, that the church is up to this task.

May the Lord bless you in your search for the man of God that He has for you.

His servant and yours
Vance Davis

My preaching centers on Christ, the gospel, and helping people grow spiritually. A resume with references is available upon request. I am not looking for full-time employment.

Description:
I am a minister driven by love and service. I have several strengths that are advantageous to my work. I relate well to people usually very quickly. I tend to be calm in chaotic circumstances, and thus find it easier to help others when some might struggle. I am a dedicated father and husband. My family is just under God in terms of respect and focus. I find new challenges a good thing. I enjoy meeting new people. I particularly find Bible study to be uplifting and strengthening. I also enjoy sharing this with new people.

Preferred Geographic Region(s):
Wherever God's people want to hear the Word. I have preached in the Midwest and southeast, but have no specific region that I prefer.

Work Experience:
From July 2011 – present I have been the Home and Family Life Minster at the Killen Church of Christ. I am primarily responsible to teach, preach intermittently, study, counsel and answer the crisis responses of the Killen Church. In so doing I have made many strong relationships.

From July 2005-2011 I was the Minister for the Allen Park Church of Christ in Allen Park, Michigan. My work there was pulpit preaching, teaching, visitation, and general community outreach.

From July 2003-June 2005 I labored at the Horton Road Church of Christ, Jackson, Michigan. If you are interested in my background or employment history here, I will discuss these issues with you at your convenience.

From January 2000 through June 2003 I was employed by the Lemay Church of Christ in Saint Louis, Missouri. I performed the “standard” duties of a pulpit minister for a congregation of 180 members. My focus there was on counseling, teaching, and preaching. I also participated in mission efforts at Saint Ann’s Bay, Jamaica.

From February 1994 through December 1999, I was employed by the Red Rock Church of Christ in Tuscumbia, Alabama. I preached, taught, counseled, and conducted personal and group Bible studies. I have been involved in prison, nursing home, hospice, and hospital ministries. I continued to be involved in mission work both foreign and domestic.

From May 1999 through December 1999 I was also the Administrator for the Christian Children’s Homes in Greenhill, AL. I was responsible for the function of the office in that I set standards, and made sure of the maintenance of all regulations of the State of Alabama’s Department of Human Resources as to the care of the foster children we had in residence. I was also responsible for the welfare of all the families that care for our children. We, at that time, had two homes with a third under construction and some ten children total, soon to be at least twelve if not fourteen children. This is a wonderful work and was blessed by the Lord tremendously.

From August of 1993 until May of 1998, while working as a full-time minister, I was also a full time student at Heritage Christian University (International Bible College) in Florence, Alabama. This is a fully accredited University known for its intense emphasis of practical application and training for the ministry while maintaining a rigorous academic atmosphere. I graduated in the Spring of 1998 with a Bachelor's Degree in Bible and an emphasis in Counseling. Before coming to Red Rock I was a member of the Leoma Church of Christ in Leoma, Tennessee where I taught various adult Bible classes as well as preached in the community for several different congregations. Before that I was a member of the Southwest Church of Christ in Richmond, Virginia where I was able to teach a Singles Bible class.
I have worked with the Central Chesterfield Church of Christ in Chesterfield, Virginia from October 1991 July 1992. I was asked to fulfill the responsibilities of the pulpit minister, and did so to the best of my abilities. I felt encumbered by my lack of time due to having to maintain full time secular employment. I thought that I could be more effective for a congregation as a full time minister. Because of this, my wife and I decided to attend an accredited institution which could grant us a degree in Bible. In making this decision we sold our home and left our families and jobs to be students at HCU.

Prior to this, I was employed with the Piedmont Church of Christ in Farmville, Virginia. I was employed October 1990 as the itinerant minister until September 1991. During that time my responsibilities were pulpit preaching and personal evangelism. The Lord blessed this endeavor greatly. While working at the Piedmont congregation, I was a member of the Cameron Avenue Church of Christ, Colonial Heights, VA, where I had been a member since 1977. During all of this time I was able to preach, intermittently, at several different congregations not mentioned.

I was discharged from the United States Army in 1987. Immediately following my discharge, my wife and I worked with the Cameron Avenue Church of Christ in Colonial Heights, Virginia, as Bible teachers for child and adult classes.

In 1983, I worked as an Assistant Youth Minister at the Cameron Avenue Church of Christ under the supervision of Kin Ellis the youth minister, as well as, the men of that current eldership. I was responsible for grades 5th 9th. My responsibilities included evaluating and creating class materials, the supervision of a weekly summer program which was also directed by myself and Kin Ellis, the conduct of a young men's training class, and various other responsibilities that had to do with my position.

I also have extensive work history as a plumber/pipefitter while working as a vocational missionary.

Marital Status/ Family:
I was married on May 25, 1985 and I have been happily married ever since. My wife is a mother, as well as a marriage and family therapist. Lora works, especially, hard for the Lord. She conducts personal Bible studies, teaches Bible classes, speaks publicly, writes, is published, and has always been well respected by members of the body of Christ. She gives me support in all that I do, but particularly when it comes to the ministry. She is every bit the epitome of the woman in Proverbs 31. It is our mutual goal to be the married couple and the individuals that God desires to work with in this world. My wife has graduated from Heritage Christian University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biblical Studies. She has taken graduate level counseling classes at Freed Hardeman University toward a Master's Degree in Counseling, and has graduated from Amridge University with a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Master of Divinity Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. She is presently working at Centerstone in Lawrenceburg, TN as a Clinical Manager and Therapist. It is her goal to help couples and individuals strengthen their life skills and their commitments to God in order to provide a foundation of love and devotion for future generations.
Lora and I are both 51 years old; in good health. We have a sixteen year old daughter “Lydia Kiara.” It is our desire to work at a place where we can continue raising our daughter and establishing a stronger and more committed congregation wherever we are. The Lord has blessed us both through many trials to be where we are today. Our only prayer is that the Lord will continue to use us as He sees fit.

I have also conducted Gospel Meetings, preached at Lectureships, conducted Youth Rallys and youth devotionals, taught at a Christian School, coached a boy's basketball team, taught substance abuse classes, taught New Christians' classes, conducted Evangelism Training Seminars, and done missionary work in the Philippines. I have a Scripturally unique style of soul-winning that has resulted in me personally baptizing over 1,100 into Christ over the past 20 years. My wife of 27 years has taught kindergarten at Gallup Christian School, taught Sunday school classes, ladies' classes, and has been a speaker at Ladies' lectureships and retreats. She is currently completing her education to receive her Bachelor of Science in nursing and will begin work soon as a Registered Nurse. I also have 2 adult children who are both faithful members of the church.

Description:
I have attended the Church of Christ my entire life and graduated from Freed-Hardeman University in 1994. I have worked at my churches College and Young Adult Minister for 10 years while doing short-term mission work until June of 2015 when my family and I moved to Eastern Europe to work with the Tartu Church of Christ for 13 months. Since returning from Estonia I have realized when you go from fishing for people to fishing for fish again you can't go back and that's why I would like to work for a church as a pulpit minister.

Preferred Geographic Region(s):
Florence Alabama

Education:
Bachelors degree in Social Work from Freed-Hardeman University and certified John Maxwell public speaker, teacher and coach. I am also involved in a continuing education program through the Zig Ziglar company.

Work Experience:
I worked 9 years as a social worker, I year in TN at a mental health facility and 8 yrs at Hospice of the Shoals and Hospice of Tennessee Valley. After my first son was born I took a job in sales so that my wife could quit her job to be a stay at home mom. I became the College and Young Adult minister for Cross Point Church of Christ on a part-time basis 10 yrs ago. I worked for the church and my sales job until we moved to Estonia to do mission work for 13 months While working with the college ministry I began a soup kitchen for the Cherry Hill community that the college kids worked at on Tuesdays. This ministry lead to a church service there at Cherry Hills home on Sunday and our group provided over 500 meals a year on Thanksgiving. Since we retuned home from Estonia last year I have been preaching for a few small churches until they can find a full-time preacher of their own. My family and I have had the opportunity to bring the gospel to Mexico, Antigua, Italy, The Czech Republic, Hungary, Estonia and Lithuania. I have had the opportunity to lead many people to Christ, perform several marriages and funerals. I would like the opportunity to work for a local Church of Christ in the North Alabama area and I believe that my experience in social work and sales lends itself to the work I have done for the church.

Marital Status/ Family:
Married 22 yrs. 2 teenage sons

Description:
I have been a bi-vocational minister since 2009 preaching in various roles from one week per month up to a full-time (still bi-vocational) ministry role in the past 3.5 years.

I am self-employed in the low voltage industry and a very hard worker. Being 45 years old, I have considered that after 20 years in the field that I am in to either substantially slow down operations, have considered selling, and passing some ownership to my family to pursue a more fully supported ministry role.

This would be a transition of sorts in which I could devote 3-4 days per week to ministry and local congregational work and the remaining days for business purposes at this point until a full transition is foreseeable depending on level of support given by a congregation.

Preferred Geographic Region(s):
I am currently able to fulfill this role in Middle Tennessee only due to family obligations for the next few years. Counties in which are easily within range for this would be Cannon, Warren, Rutherford, Dekalb, Coffee, parts of Wilson and surrounding areas will also be considered.

I know this is a bit of a challenging demographic as there are not as many supportive positions as others in this area; however, I am fully dedicated to my efforts wherever they may be.

Education:
Associates Degree in Business Management 1991 Motlow State Community College

24-26 hours short of Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies from Heritage Christian University.

Several certifications, management trainings, and computer trainings from bi-vocatinal field as well.

I have a desire to complete the educational requirements at Heritage Christian as soon as opportunity presents itself.
