Pastor Profiles 




There is a lot of information contained in a Pastor Profile. How are you to digest all of it while discerning how a candidate may (or may not) fit the needs and hopes of your congregation? Here is a tutorial for reading a Pastor Profile as well as a sample profile to practice with. If you have further questions about pastor profiles, please contact the Vermont Conference, UCC by calling 802-728-4999.

In the Pastor Profile, candidates are asked to respond to the Marks in their long form answers. To better understand the Marks, download the full guide with its assessment:
