The Broadway church of Christ was begun in 1906 as a group worshiping under the shade of a single tree on Goebel Avenue. Now, over 100 years later, the church continues to grow and minister to families and children in the historic and beautiful west end of Paducah. The Broadway church building is located on the 2800 block of Broadway, along the Dogwood Trail. The church has a well equipped worship center, plenty of classroom space, a fellowship hall/chapel, and a videoconferencing suite that houses the Global Preacher Training Center. Broadway also has a Family Life Center with additional classrooms and a gymnasium for church fellowship and recreational activities. The Broadway church of Christ is dedicated to teaching the gospel throughout the community and the world. During the early years the church was housed at 19th & Broadway, but in the late 1950's the church moved to its present location, where growth continues and future expansions are planned. Dr. Dan R. Owen, Broadway's preaching minister since 1987, emphasizes that one of Broadway's goals is to support family. We believe in strong, permanent biblical marriages. We encourage marriages to stay together and teach our members to commit to their mates for life. We seek to nurture strong families. The Broadway church of Christ considers every member a minister because it wants every Christian to be involved in serving the Lord. The church has four full time ministers on staff. Andrew Clausen has served as the Seniors/Worship Minister since 2000. He leads Broadway's Senior Seekers in service activities including helping disaster relief organizations, children's homes, outreach to missionaries, and holiday outreach projects. Senior Seekers meet each Tuesday for a devotional and a program of special interest to seniors. Once a month they have a senior's outing for fun and fellowship.
