Evaluating Pastors

Congratulations! Your Local Church Profile is finished and posted on the United Church of Christ’s Ministry Opportunities page.

Now you are starting to receive Pastor Profiles from pastors interested in your church. How do you evaluate, interview and discern who best fits your church’s needs?

The pages below will be your guide through this process. Remember, you may will likely be in different stages of the evaluation process with different candidates. It is vital to be sure who is where and that you are communicating clearly within your search committee and with the candidates themselves. If you have further questions about evaluating pastoral candidates, please contact the Vermont Conference, UCC by calling 802-728-4999.
