Need Help with Your Resume or Search?

Today, we are releasing something we’ve been dreaming about for a long time.



We have the privilege of talking with (literally) hundreds of church staff candidates every week about transition and finding their next ministry call.


The work is gratifying.


But transition is tough. In fact, in all my years of doing this, I’ve never heard one person say, “I love the job search process."


It is a time of discernment. It is a time of stress. It is time to put yourself out there and hope that people like you. 



It’s also a time that makes many uncomfortable. How do I "sell" myself without being arrogant?  How do I write my resume in a way that helps me get interviews with the right church? How do I know where God wants my family and me to go next in our ministry?


Today, we are releasing something we’ve been dreaming about for a long time. We want to help you if you need it during your transition... So we are introducing some new one-on-one resources that we hope will help you if you need that extra bit of advice, a boost of confidence, or a mentor during this time.


See if one of these might be of help to you:
