“Scoopy” come lately’s

The Scoop Blog is widely read and we pray very helpful. Thanks to the many of you at FHU who told us you read it every time it comes out. But KNOW that The Scoop Blog only exists because you share what you hear about. If we are to keep it going and make it most useful we need you. Never assume we have already heard about an opening. We’d rather hear about an opening three or four times than miss it because someone thought it wasn’t important or that we had already heard.  Send news to TheJenkinsInstitute@gmail.com. KY: The Henderson church of Christ in Henderson, KY is looking to hire a Youth and Family Minister. They are a church of 250 located on the Kentucky/Indiana line. They have a great opportunity to reach a large segment of the young people...
