March 21, 2023


Over the past few months, we have received numerous worthy resumes. It was obvious as we read through them that many would be qualified to serve here alongside us at BHBC. At this point, our committee has completed the step of sifting through the resumes to 15 candidates that we are working to learn more about. Each of those received a questionnaire last week via email.

Unfortunately, this means that many candidates who have been interested in our search will not be able to move forward in the search process. Honestly, this part of the process is hard. I know many of you desire to serve the Lord, and we believe that God has a place for you. I have been in your shoes more times than I can count, and it can often be disappointing, disheartening, and feel like rejection. I hope you remember that we are seeking the Lord to discover whom God has for us. Therefore, it means you are the person God has chosen for another opportunity.


After we review the questionnaires, we will interview 3-5 candidates. Our hope is to begin that part of our search early in April. Thank you for your prayers as we continue to seek the Lord's will in who He desires to serve here with us.

Our committee was hopeful to move on to the next step at the end of this week by sending questionnaires to candidates. However, we have not been able to finishing looking at all the resumes. If you submitted a resume, I know this can feel like a slow process and can be frustrating. I have been there, and I understand. Please know we are prayerfully working as quickly as we can. We are hoping to finish this step by the end of next week, and we will continue to add updates as needed. Please continue to pray for us as we are seeking the Lord’s will in who He desires to serve along with us here at BHBC.

Over the past month, we have received a large number resumes. I know many of those who submitted a resume are wondering where we are in our process and if they are still being considered as a candidate. At this point, we are still reviewing those resumes and trying to narrow them down to a smaller number. My hope is that in the next couple of weeks we will be reaching out to those candidates we believe God is leading us to take the next step with. Please continue to pray for us as we are seeking the Lord’s will in who He desires to serve along with us here at BHBC.

January 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 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.
