Find Your Next Minister

Connect Churches with staff

One of the most challenging and high-risk seasons of a church’s life is when it is experiencing a minister transition.

One of the most challenging and high-risk seasons of a church’s life is when it is experiencing a minister transition. It is financially expensive, it requires a significant increase of energy and involvement, it strains relationships, and it is a clear and present threat to ministry momentum.

Unfortunately, the risk doesn’t end there. Making a great hire sets your church up for short- and long-term success. But there is nothing worse than surviving a minister hiring process just to find out within a few months that you made a poor choice and are now staring at another search process in the face.

Whether you are preparing for a minister search or if you have been struggling to find and hire your next minister, The CCL Network is prepared to help you! Contact us today to learn how our team of experienced church leaders can assist your elders and search team to conduct a feasibility study, create a job posting and description, develop a compensation package, identify quality candidates, conduct interviews and trial weekends, and navigate the hiring and onboarding processes.

BENEFITS OF Find Your Next Minister


FYNM guides you through a Readiness Evaluation exercise and then helps you craft an attractive and professional job description and corresponding job posting.

Candidate Matching

FYNM conducts a series of conversations and assessments that clarify your church's key mission, values, vision, and cultural distinctives. The team then utilizes that information to identify, evaluate, and deliver 1-3 candidates who are highly qualified and compatible with your church and leadership teams.


FYNM provides information, tools, and coaching to help your church navigate the hiring process including the final evaluation of the candidates, identifying the preferred candidate, and constructing a formal offer letter.


FYNM provides an in-depth onboarding resource to help you welcome and orient the minister to your team, facilities, culture, etc. in ways that will accelerate familiarity, relationship building, and ministry effectiveness.
