Are you a church seeking a pastor? We have some resources that can help. The AEMs has been entrusted with the responsibility of being a resource person to Pulpit/Search Committees, and normally it is through the Associate Executive Ministers that a resume reaches a Pulpit/Search Committee. However, a Pulpit/Search Committee has the right to approach a pastor personally to request that you provide a resume. If this should happen it would be helpful for the pastor to make to the Associate Executive Ministers aware of the request.
First point of contact – Wendy Jones – Phone (506-635-1922 ext. 102) or email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend each candidate use a Uniform Resume Format (see below):
- To help Pulpit/Search Committees to process the resume information efficiently;
- To give Pulpit/Search Committees uniform resume categories to review;
- To assist the Associate Executive Ministers in presenting resume information;
- To help ensure that confidentiality is retained once a resume has been released.
Preparation for Interviews
You are encouraged to save the following items for discussion at the interview with a Pulpit/Search Committee:
- Reasons for being open to a new call;
- Specific experiences in the present and/or past ministry situations;
- Personal interests, “hobby horses,” and biases.
