LATEST UPDATE

Welcome to the search for BHBC Student Pastor. We will be collecting resumes through February 17, 2023. Our goal with this page is to keep both our church family and potential candidates informed of where we are in the process. We have already begun praying that God will direct us to the person He has for this position. I hope you will join us in praying for clarity, wisdom, and discernment throughout this process. If you have not submitted a resume and would like to, you can email it to studentpastorsearch@brainerdhills.com. If you would like to see the job description, please click here.

Our Student Pastor Search Committee has already met several times in the past month. We have spent our time implementing our process; evaluating the needs of our church and community; listing qualities we desire in a student pastor; meeting with students, parents, and student workers to hear their feedback; and doing lots of praying. These things take time, and we want to make sure we are never behind or in front of what God is doing. The following is our plan, but we also understand that sometimes God intervenes and does things differently than our plan. As a committee, we are open to any step in this process God may change along the way. Here are the steps we are planning on taking:

 

  • Collect resumes (last day for resumes will be February 17, 2023)

  • Evaluate resumes

  • Narrow search to 10-15 candidates

  • Candidates will respond to a questionnaire

  • Narrow search to 3-5 candidates

  • Zoom interview

  • Narrow search to 1 candidate

  • Zoom interview

  • Theological interview with pastor

  • Plan visit to meet our staff, tour city, and interview with committee

  • Present candidate to church (this will include an entire weekend with scheduled activities)

As always, we invite you to be in prayer with us as we seek God's will in this matter.
