The Office of LeaderCare/Church Administration is honored to serve our churches by providing to inquiring congregations biographical information on prospective ministers. Our files contain the names of ministers open to God's leadership to make staff and career changes. This, of course, is a dynamic process, which involves the spiritual disciplines of listening to God, prayer, and being continually sensitive to His guidance. We accept this role fully aware of God's promises and provision to those seeking His will for ministry and life.
Hundreds of requests come into our office from churches seeking biographical data on individuals willing to accept new ministry challenges. God uses us as an information referral ministry. We attempt to link congregations and potential candidates by matching certain basic criteria regarding education, experience, and other pertinent ministry data.
Our personal and professional knowledge of the candidates is often limited. Diligence should always mark the pastor or church staff search process. References should be secured in every instance, and be verified along with other background information. The fact that we have served our referral mission does not represent an endorsement of a particular individual. Names are shared in good faith that God will use these efforts to introduce our churches to people eager to serve.
Selecting a church minister, whether a pastor or staff member, is a Kingdom task! That is why we must covenant in prayer to seek His guidance in these matters. Whether you are seeking to fill a staff vacancy, or are willing to place your ministry in God's hand, join us in praying that God will use this office to serve our churches in Kingdom growth.
