Search Committee Services

Churches Seeking a Minister

Leadership is the key to the health of any organization or institution. Churchnet is committed to assisting local churches as they seek God’s will in calling pastors and staff members. We also realize the process of calling a new pastor or staff member is not an easy task.

Leadership is certainly a key to the health of churches. When right leaders are in the right place at the right time, church health can and does occur. Churchnet provides a uniquely professional system for pastoral calling. It is based on the premise that effective ministry matching occurs when there is comprehensive information and analysis.

What Makes Our System Unique?

The process along with experienced coaching provides churches the best opportunity to experience a ministry match that glorifies God and grows the Kingdom. In coaching there is no substitute for experience and expertise. The Churchnet team is well-trained with a wide range of experience in assisting churches. Our Search Committee Services, led by Dr. Jim Hill and our Churchnet staff, will provide your search committee with the help it needs to be exceptionally successful.

What Will It Cost to Use the Churchnet System?

All the materials and services of the Resources & Relationships Team are provided free of charge by Churchnet.

Our Ministry Goals

  1. Churchnet is committed to helping churches with the “calling” process.
    Our conviction is that most people have not had an opportunity to serve on a search committee for any minister for their church. We want to provide a clear process and the resource materials needed to assist search committees as they lead their congregations to call a pastor or staff member.
  2. Churchnet is committed to helping churches and ministers find the right match.We also believe that churches can become healthier when they are successfully matched in as many areas as possible with their ministry staff. These areas include: doctrine, ethics, issues affecting the church, marital and family issues, temperament, leadership style, gifts and values, financial understandings, and others. This is not just about placement, but matching.

Churchnet believes that one of the greatest needs for congregational health is the right leader in the right place at the right time.

Check out the Search Resources sub-menu item for more information.  We also provide an opportunity for churches to post information regarding their staff search processes and request recommendations and resumes.
