The Orlando Church of Christ is seeking a ministry couple to lead the church planting in Brevard County (also known as The Space Coast). There are 29 faithful disciples anxiously awaiting full-time leadership for this new planting.
The Space Coast of Florida's larger cities are Melbourne, Cocoa, Palm Bay, and Titusville with a county population of just under 600,000. 350,000 consider themselves to be “unaffiliated” religiously. Florida Institute of Technology serves 9,000 students with 30% from 101 other countries! Also, Eastern Florida State/Brevard Community College has 26,000 students. Patrick Air Force Base has 9,500 military personnel plus their families. Brevard County is a great open harvest with global impact.
There are 72 miles of beaches, the longest stretch in the state, and more than 250 square miles of wildlife refuge. It is home to one of the nation’s busiest cruise ports, is the nation’s East Coast surfing capital and the location of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, where all 135 shuttle missions were launched and unmanned rockets continue to lift off. It is a great place to live and work!
The Orlando Church of Christ is a church of 600 and currently has five elders along with a ministry staff of 12 and several interns. The planting team will be supported financially, spiritually, and discipled by, and a part of, a mature church leadership.
We are looking for a young couple with both prior ministry leadership experience and a passion to bring the gospel of Christ to a hurting world. The Orlando Church is now accepting applications for those interested in this exciting opportunity. We are praying and planning to have the couple in place as soon as possible.
