How Can Our Church Search For A Pastor?

Churches Seeking a Senior/Solo Pastor or Additional Pastoral Staff

Notify Our Office

When a senior or solo pastor position becomes vacant, we strongly recommend that the primary church leadership board meet as soon as possible with the District Superintendent. He will work with you on implementing a comprehensive search process.

If you are seeking an associate staff member, contact our office at as we have resources that can help you in your search. Some of those resources include names of potential candidates.
