Here is a job description we wrote to call a pastor to our ministry setting of two rural churches, working together.
In this post, Dirk Nagtegaal, Search Committee Chairperson at Duncan CRC, in Duncan, BC, shares the steps he takes when reaching out to prospective pastors.
Here at Trinity CRC in Anchorage, AK, we just wrapped up a pastor search process. Here are five things we believe helped our search process be a successful and edifying experience for all of us!
Where can I find the procedures, established or suggested, for inviting a pastor?
So, your church is looking for a pastor! Where do you begin? What do you need to know? Who can you talk to? In response to these questions, we are excited to introduce a new process called PastorSearch.
I am a member of a search committee and am looking for the names and profiles of candidates graduating Calvin Seminary this year that are going to be eligible for call. Is this posted somewhere?
I'm on a search committee and we could really use a database of not only pastors available for call, but also churches that are looking to hire a pastor. Does anyone know of such a resource?
This manual will assist search committees and councils as they search for a new pastor.
I'm on the search committee for a pastor at my church and we are looking for sample evaluation forms to use when we go to hear a pastor preach. Got any ideas?
This new topic is a place where members of Pastor Search Committees can correspond with each other, share resources and best practices, and even share frustrations.
