Minister Career Coaching

We understand that being a minister can sometimes be a lonely road to travel. Everyone turns to you for advice and direction, but who do you turn to when you need help with your career? It can be awkward to discuss career issues with your current elders, members or ministry peers. For that reason, we offer free consultation, counseling, and career coaching services for ministers within the Churches of Christ fellowship. If you are:

Coaching Chalk Board

  • Want an objective review of your application, or

Resume Writing

A strong resume opens doors and gives you a seat in the interview process. Your resume needs to detail your experience, highlight your accomplishments, talk about your abilities, and summarize your education. It should clearly convey your unique gifts and what sets you apart from the rest of the candidates applying for a position. As part of your first impression on a search committee, your resume also needs to be professional, easy to read, and most importantly free of errors and misspellings. 

Does your resume do all of that?  If not, we offer two levels of service to help you get your resume in shape.  If you have an existing resume that just needs to be updated or tweaked, select our Resume Modification service.  If you need help creating a resume from scratch, select our Resume Creation service.

ABC Blocks

Your congregation has just hired a minister, and it seems like they are the perfect fit. Congratulations! There is one more step to the process, though, and it is just as important as the process of finding the right minister. You might have heard people refer to how the “first hundred days” of someone’s job usually sets the tone for their entire career with that organization. The same is true with ministers. Just as your congregation is going through a major transition, so is your new minister. The first few months of a job are a stressful time, and it is the job of the elders and search committee to help your new minister through their transition.

We refer to this as the “On-Boarding Stage.” Since the “first hundred days” is so important to the rest of a minister’s career with your congregation, we believe this stage is one of the keys to reducing minister turnover in the church. In this post, we want to talk about a few of the things that a new minister needs from their congregation during this transition period. We will refer to them as the ABC’s of the On-Boarding Phase.
