Pastoral Transition & Search
For The Church:
The Alberta/NWT District helps local Church leadership teams in their journey of transition after a pastor completes ministry and then guides in the search and selection process of their next pastor. Congregational analysis tools, survey instruments, and advertisement for potential candidates are part of the process.
Check out - www.outreachnetwork.ca . This is a great website resource for churches in a transition period.
When a pastor is in process of completing their ministry agreement in a local church, the Local Church Constitution directs that the District Superintendent be informed to assist both pastor and church in the next steps.
For The Minister:
Updated ministry opportunities within the district are listed and described on this site. Ministers who are making themselves available to congregations for consideration should do so by submitting a resume to the pastoral search committee of the church. A completed copy of the questionnaire "Matching Minister With Ministry" should be included.
