Finding a Faith Community: A Candidate's Perspective

Every step was intentional, vital, and necessary for building a long lasting relationship.

A Faith Community

You have a valuable role to play in the Kingdom. But the church job search process can be difficult and discouraging. A wonderful thing happens when you find a church that shares your personal mission, vision and values: lives are changed, and your family will flourish.

 

If you are looking for a ministry position, we want to help you find a church that fits you - theologically, culturally, socially, and spiritually. When you find the right place to serve and are obedient to the Lord's calling, unbelievable things can happen.

 

Chemistry Staffing exists to facilitate these types of introductions and relationships. 

 

Recently, Chemistry Staffing helped Rebekah in a Teaching Pastor role at Green Valley Community Church in Placerville, California.

 

Here is what she had to say:

"

 
Finding a new ministry job is difficult because it is not only about finding a good fit professionally, it is also about finding a new home and faith community to belong to. My family and I have found this in Green Valley. From the moment we met and visited them, we knew there was something special there. As we walked through the process and discovered their hearts and more about what makes them unique in how they serve God and their community, we fell in love with the mission and people of Green Valley. They are genuine, honest, and passionate in their pursuit of Jesus. I am excited to become a member of this team and part of what God is doing through Green Valley Community Church. 
 
Every step of the process with Chemistry felt intentional. It felt as

though they were really trying to get to know me in order to find the best long-term fit. The conversations with the Chemistry staff were comfortable, unforced, genuine, and beneficial. Every interaction prepared me well for eventually meeting the church I was interviewing for. Matt was available to talk things through and gave me much-needed context and perspective throughout the process. 
 
Trust the process. There were times I felt impatient because I had a specific timeline in my head, and things were taking longer than I expected. In retrospect, every step was intentional, vital, and necessary for building a long-lasting relationship. Because the process was so well executed, I have a deep sense of confidence that this is the right move to make and this is helping make the huge transition from one ministry to another easier.
