This is the landing page for a new blog series that will run on Thursdays. As each post is written it will be linked here.
Working on some content for a new series and I need your help.
Before you were a Rookie Pastor you were a wanna be Rookie Pastor. You were looking for a job, and as I talk with some of you who are currently in that spot finding a ministry job isn’t as easy as you thought it would be.
Churches and non-profits were one of the first sectors to feel the economic downturn and will probably one of the last to feel the benefits of any improvement. Finding a job was hard enough already.
But ministry isn’t just about finding a job, it is about finding the right job. Ministry is more than a job and it encompasses much of your life so you shouldn’t jump at the first thing that comes along without some prayerful consideration.
So as I put together this practical series I want to be sure to tackle some basics about where to look, surviving the interview, red flags to look out for, but I also want to look into the dynamic of considering going back to school, taking a part-time when you need full-time, and how to react when things feel hopeless.
