Additional information

I am single. I've never been married and I have no children.

I am willing to relocate.

My preference is a church with a strong vision with congregational support. I've been serving at a multi-site church. While that is not necessarily what I'm looking for, that's the level of vision I'm looking for - a church dedicated to reaching out and possesses a growth strategy - both numerically and in the individual lives of the members.
