The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship’s reference and referral system is about to change! In fact, we are excited to announce that on May 16, a new version of CBF-LeaderConnect will be launched which is designed to be simpler, more user-friendly and more accurate in matching the needs of a church minister search to the qualifications of candidates.
We believe that a church which has found the particular person God intends to serve as pastor or in a staff leadership role is poised to do great ministry and witness in the community, in the nation and around the world as they fulfill that mission. That person will, in turn, be a great blessing to that local church and its ministry and witness.
This service, which is provided to our churches and our ministers at no cost, is designed to be a tool in that search process. We trust that God works through the technology and through this undertaking as we all seek to be the presence of Christ.
Although no matching will occur before May 16, both church search committees and candidates will be able to enter information beginning May 9 at
