Our mission in district placement ministry is to assist churches in finding well-suited pastoral staff members.

Our vision for placement ministry in the NCD is two-fold:

  • Administratively and functionally (the NOW): providing a truly helpful pathway and practical resources for churches to navigate the challenging process of choosing a pastor from among a group of strangers
  • Culturally and philosophically (the FUTURE): nurturing and fostering a culture of church-based training and intentional ministry succession that would yield candidates for pastoral staff positions who are known and proven locally

The process God uses to match individual leaders with specific ministries is varied, often mysterious, sometimes frustrating, sometimes amazing. We count it a special privilege indeed whenever God chooses to use us to facilitate lasting and fruitful matches.
