Ready or not, here it comes!! Graduation that is. Many of you will be walking across the stage in just a few months and you may have no idea what the next step is going to be for you. Let the office of Church-Minister Relations help!
Over 200 churches have already requested résumés to fill ministry positions since January 1.
There are more churches looking for ministers than you probably realize! There are literally hundreds of churches of all different types and sizes asking NOBTS to send them Music Ministers, Children’s Ministers, Youth Ministers, Education/Discipleship Ministers, Outreach Ministers, etc., etc. I think you get the point. In 2016, almost 2000 churches requested résumés through our seminary. There are currently 181 church positions that are open in our database. Trust me when I say that many, many churches are very interested in having a NOBTS qualified minister serve at their church.
Another way to get connected to ministry opportunities is through LIFE BEYOND SEMINARY, February 14-16. This event is designed to help students and alumni get connected to ministry opportunities in different places throughout the country. Representatives from 5 states will be available to talk with you about ministry in their state. Are you from, interested in, or called to minister in one of the following states: LOUISIANA, MISSISSIPPI, MONTANA, INDIANA, or IDAHO? These state representatives want to buy you a cup of coffee, take you out for dinner at a popular New Orleans restaurant, and talk with you about ministry in their state. God wants us to get involved in His kingdom work in every state. LIFE BEYOND SEMINARY is a great way to get started.
In addition to these state representatives, we will have a representative present from both the United States Navy to discuss Chaplaincy opportunities. We will also have representatives from both NAMB and the IMB present to discuss opportunities available with both organizations.
If you are interested in meeting one of these state representatives, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll make sure I line you up with an interview with one or several of these representatives. Also, don’t forget to stop by their displays during LIFE BEYOND SEMINARY in the Hardin Student Center, February 14-16.
Don’t forget to get your FREE BREAKFAST on THURSDAY MORNING, compliments of the Church-Minister Relations Office, before heading to class!!
