Looking for a Ministry Position?

’Tis that time of year – when seminarians who are about to be graduated from their seminaries realize that, if they wish to have a place as a congregational minister in a church, the time is growing short for them to get their resumes out with an eye toward finding the right place of service and being gainfully employed before they depart their respective schools.

I heard recently from one of the graduating seminarians who has just completed the process of working out all the details about a call to a church to which CBF had sent his resume through our reference and referral service. He began his search in early January and his resume had been sent to some 10 or so churches. He wrote, thanking CBF for the assistance he had received. He then said, “I have other seminary friends looking for jobs with little success and it seems the biggest difference is that they haven’t filled out your information and gotten your help.”

It gave me pause to wonder why. I encourage all the candidates with whom I work – whether seminarians or seasoned ministers – to use every network they have at their disposal. This includes not depending on CBF alone to help them – but to appeal to colleagues, seminary administrators, mentors, other ministers and anyone else who can guide them through the often muddy waters of finding that just right place of service. Casting as broad a net as possible – and weaving that net through and through with prayer – can yield amazing results.

  11. The market is flooded with experience, and that experience is coming cheap in their times of desperation.
    However, when we refer to modern accounting history, we start with the
    double entry bookkeeping procedures that characterized the accounting procedures
    of Italian Renaissance merchants, and gave them the organization and clarity
    they needed to rise to the top of the world of trade at the time.
    It may be wiser in the long run for the “powers that be” to focus on
    economic support in areas that are more directed to the largest amount of the population, those who fall beneath the level of
    income that could afford to buy a house in the first place.
