Dick Wamsley began serving as our Interim Minister on September 4, 2022. This is the second time for Dick to serve Ramsey Christian Church while we are searching for a full-time minister. He served in a similar capacity here from November, 2016 – June, 2017.
Dick has over 44 years of full-time ministry experience, 27 of those years as Senior Minister at Taylorville Christian Church, Taylorville, Illinois, and 14 years at Nebraska Christian College, Norfolk Nebraska, as Student Dean and President. For the past 9+ years he has served interim ministries in 9 churches in central and southern Illinois.
Dick will preach each Sunday for Ramsey Christian and will work with the elders in the search for a full-time minister. He and his wife, Dee, live in Taylorville. They have two sons, Jon and Dave, four grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
Ramsey Christian Church of Ramsey, Illinois is accepting applications for a full-time minister.
The church is in a town of about one thousand people in a rural community. Pre-pandemic attendance was about one hundred but is currently around 50. We strongly desire to reach more young families and the youth in our community. The school system in Ramsey is the focus of most activities. School functions, sports and otherwise, are very well attended. We would like to find a minister who would be involved in community activities and who has a winsome personality to which the youth would be drawn. Having a young family would be a plus but not necessary. Developing a strong youth program should be a major focus. Evangelizing the younger members of our community while advocating for the senior citizens already in the church would require an amazing amount of energy.
What we are looking for is a minister who would accept the challenge of starting basically a new church built upon the foundation of dedicated established members. As for preaching, we are looking for biblically strong sermons that speak to the issues of today as we attempt to follow Jesus in our daily lives. We want to love our neighbors into being Jesus followers, and we need your help.
Please mail applications to Ramsey Christian Church, PO Box 453, Ramsey, Illinois or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sending a video of your preaching would be very helpful as well. It may be sent to email@example.com.
Our Five-year vision will be a strong youth and community program supported by the next generation of Ramsey Christian Church blended with the current congregation.
