Searching for the Called overview (New dates and times added regularly). Searching for the Called is a comprehensive pastoral search process that equips search teams to identify and engage effectively with candidates with whom they can envision fruitful ministry. It also enables search teams to avoid clergy-congregation mismatches that lead to conflict, heartache, inward focus, and the expense associated with a minister’s quick departure. Free webinars about Searching for the Called are offered monthly. Registration is available here.
