Eagleville Bible Church is looking for a man to lead us in reaching surrounding communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helping to shoulder the load of counseling at the church.

If you are passionate about using your ability to help us better communicate the importance of evangelism and putting an effective outreach game plan into motion, then this may be a position for you!
We are a growing church in rural northeast Ohio about an hour east of Cleveland and an hour west of Erie, Pennsylvania. We completed a building project just over two years ago and have 700-800 people worshiping with us on Sunday mornings! Eagleville is a friendly, non-judgmental, come as you are place. We are passionate about teaching the Bible in a relevant way, connecting with others through small groups, loving people, and serving in our church and community.
We need a good leader who believes in hard work, team work, and God’s work in our world! We are not looking for someone who needs to be told what to do or wants to play with an already scripted game plan. We are searching for a creative self-starter who will follow God’s guidance in making a true eternal difference in the lives of our young people. We crave a man of integrity who is relatable, task oriented, and capable of clearly communicating biblical truth.
