APPLICATION PROCESS
In order to get to know you better, please provide a comprehensive resume/CV. When writing the resume/CV, substance is of more interest than brevity. Give enough information so that the breadth of your ministry experience is understood.


When describing your work as a church staff member it would be helpful to know the total membership of the church, the worship style of the church, the size of the staff, where you were on the organization chart, your direct reports, etc.


If you are in a para-church organization or non-profit, be very specific about your involvement and
experience in a local church. While humility is appreciated, it is important for us to know the breadth and depth of your involvement and how God has used you in the life of the local church.


As we progress through our careers, most of us have changed jobs and/or employers several times. For each job change, be sure to include why you moved from that position to your next.


Please include some information about your family and your love for the local church.
