The Minister Hiring Process works, but don't just take our word on it.

Don Viar brings a wealth of knowledge and competence to the search process. Don walked with us through the entire process  and was always available via text or email to handle questions and concerns. Minister Match is filling a tremendous need among Churches of Christ. I heartily recommend Minister Match to any congregation looking to hire a minister. - Jim Holway, Lead Minister, Sunset Church of Christ, Miami, FL

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.
