: Denison is a community located in Southwest Iowa and has a population over 8,000 residents and growing. The demographics show that 50% of the residents in Denison and about 25-30% of the residents in Crawford County are listed as multi-ethnic. Because of these very diverse demographics, we are purposely planting a Multi-Ethnic conservative Evangelical Church. Our average Sunday morning attendance at DBC is between 20-40 people, representing up to 8 different language groups. Although the city of Denison lists 8,200 residents our area of impact is between 20,000 – 25,000 residents. Statistically, Denison and the surrounding area is largely unreached with less then 0.04% of the population attending a healthy conservative Evangelical Church on any given Sunday. Faciltiy: We are very fortunate to own a large historic facility located in downtown Denison. The Building was constructed in 1887 with incredible acoustics and a seating capacity of over 300 people. Between the sanctuary, the annex and the basements we have a lot of room for growth. The Need: The legal community has approached me and has requested DBC to develop a Christ centered recovery program for people struggling with addictions. Celebrate Recovery was mentioned and recommended as program for us to consider. Addiction, mental health, and abuse are huge challenges we face here in Southwest Iowa. Many people are with these issues and feel hopelessness with no way out.
Salary: As a new Church plant we do not have money to pay a salary at the present time. Therefore the person or couple would need to work bi-vocationally and or raise their financial support. If raising financial support is of interest to you, I would be happy to talk to more about how this can be done. We do expect this position to become a paid position in the future and it will be dependent upon our growth. As to working bi-vocationally, jobs are readily available in Denison. Denison is in a Microenvironment, with only 4% unemployment and a low cost of living.
