About Louisville Christian Church:

We have over 60 teens in our church of over 400. Over 1/3 of those are actively involved in our youth program. Our current Youth Minister will be moving into F/T Worship & Music ministry with the church. We also employ 2 P/T Children's Ministry Directors. The program they lead serves over 70 elementary and pre-school children. This church has a great future!

The church is a dynamic, growing congregation. Most of the growth the last few years has been families in child-raising years. There is a spirit of excitement moving in our church! That enthusiasm has translated into natural person-to-person evangelism.

The church has recently become debt-free, paying off the latest building addition 8 years early. Weekly offerings average over $1000 above budgeted expenses. The church leadership has a generous attitude about spending money to develop and improve upon ministry and outreach programs.

Our leadership is dedicated to biblical principles, yet progressive regarding methodology.
