Pastoral Search Services

Transitions can be scary, emotional, and hard on a congregation and its leaders. But they can also be filled with celebrations and opportunities. Celebrations of God’s goodness and provision in the past, as well as opportunities to grasp a fresh vision for the future.

At Converge Heartland we believe that the local church is God’s primary vehicle for spiritual vitality and redemptive activity in the world (Matt. 16:18; Eph. 3:10). In light of this conviction, it is our desire to walk alongside churches and assist them in reaching their full redemptive potential. One of the ways we do this is by providing assistance during pastoral transition. This could come through coaching a pastor and his leadership team through a succession plan as well as executing a comprehensive search for the next pastor to lead your church.

Finding, identifying and recruiting gifted leaders is hard work. Lyle Schaller suggests that only 10% to ­15% of all pastors have the gifts, skills and temperament to start a new church or grow an existing church. Identifying these leaders is a huge task. Installing the wrong leader could have a dramatic impact on the church’s health, future and missional impact.

Converge Heartland desires to see all of our churches filled with Great Commission oriented leaders who are committed to seeing more and stronger disciples produced through the ministry of the local church. In light of this passion and commitment to the local church, we are looking to make a significant investment in our member churches by aiding them in their search process.
