Care-takers note:  The scoop blog exists to serve one purpose. To help ministers and churches connect.  We are not a guide to gage the faithfulness of anyone. We are not a promotion tool for any agenda or organization.  We are the yellow pages.  We are not paid by anyone for this work and belong to no one but Christ.  And we have no crystal ball. Therefore to exist we must have your input. We are hereby commissioning you as an official assistant in the scoop-blogging field. It’s a quite simple job: When you hear of a preacher leaving (for whatever reason) a church of Christ let us know. Send an email. Make it second nature.  When you hear of a church adding a ministry role – let us know. Give us any details you have, contacts, specifics of what...
