Ministry Placement

The Placement Taskforce has as its primary function the specific responsibility of helping churches to find a new Minister when a vacancy occurs as well as working with Ministers in identifying fresh possibilities for ministry in other places. In both instances the Taskforce sees itself as a service group to ministers and churches.

At any given point of time, the Taskforce will be cooperating with anywhere between five to ten churches depending on the pastoral needs being experienced. In the past churches sought the assistance of such a Taskforce mainly for the purpose of appointing senior ministers (where there was a pastoral team) or solo Ministers (where there was no team). In more recent times increasing numbers of churches are now requiring assistance in the appointment of additional team members. With this level of demand there is a commitment to the constant improvement of resources for churches together with ongoing changes to our modus operandi depending on the needs being communicated. The Placement Taskforce seeks to provide the highest level of service possible in what is certainly one of the most important decisions a church can ever make about its leadership.
