There is an RCUS church in Herreid, South Dakota (about 15 miles from where I live), whose pastor has just accepted a call in Lincoln, Nebraska. It is a fairly small church, but very stable. The outgoing pastor is Lee Johnson, author of the blog Two-Edged Sword. He is leaving in July. He is a good friend of mine. The church is an excellent place to begin ministry for a young, inexperienced minister (maybe someone straight out of seminary), since they have experienced elders there, although it would also be a great place for any age of minister. They take very good care of their ministers. Please, only very confessional folks (no exceptions at all to the Three Forms of Unity) should consider applying. One does not have to be ordained in the RCUS. They will accept as stated supply someone outside their denomination, although that person would have to be examined by the classis. I am especially interested in seeing if there is a good PCA man who is confessional, who might be interested. There is a parsonage. The cost of living is quite low, and thus the salary, while not extravagant, is more than livable. There is Reformed fellowship for the said pastor, since I am there, and the Baptist pastor in Herreid is also Reformed (a really great guy with a phenomenal sense of humor). Anyone who is interested in this ought to contact Vern Ochsner, the one heading up the consistory at the moment. His number is 605-437-2772.
