Minister Connection

We have created an online search tool, which allows you to submit open ministry positions. This tool contains information about pastorless churches and about pastoral candidates seeking a new opportunity for ministry. We cooperate with Baptist associations, educational institutions and other like-minded organizations to develop this database of qualified pastoral candidates.

Pastor Input

Pastors, we heard you. We know you've got too much to do and too little time to do it. That's why we created this page. We hope this page becomes your one-stop-shop for all things related to the pastorate. And while we'll do our best, we know we can't build this page alone. We're going to need your help. Let us know what is and isn't working. We'll continue to shape this content to better help you do your job.  If you have any suggestions for us, please contact one of our ministry assistants.
