are NACCC registered pastors searching available positions. Each Pastorate completes a profile (or resume) detailing their work history, education, polity, and experience. The information is provided to the NACCC directly and is vetted through our background checking system.
For Pastors Seeking a New Position
Login or Create an Account
Pastors that are seeking new positions begin by requesting a Pastoral Search account. The NACCC staff will verify your status as a member or non-member and follow up accordingly. If you are not affiliated with an NACCC member church you must submit an Administrative Fee of $100 made payable to the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches along with your Minister Disclosure File in order to access the tools.
Complete Information Disclosure Steps
Once approved, each pastor must complete a Pastoral Search Minister Disclosure File in accordance with the NACCC Disclosure Protocol and Policy. The Disclosure File may take some time to complete so plan accordingly. The Minister Disclosure File is not a “personnel file” nor is it confidential. However, the files are not open to general inspection. All questions concerning this form should be directed to Laura Wright, Pastoral Relations Coordinator. You may also call the NACCC office at 800.262.1620 ext. 1614.
Complete Pastorate Profile
Once your Minister Disclosure File is complete, you will be given full access to your Pastorate profile, where you will complete the Minister Information Form (MIF). This form asks detailed questions about your experience, education, polity, and more and is the main information for your profile. When you connect with a church of interest, they will have complete access to your completed profile.
Connect With Churches
Once you are registered and have completed your MIF, you will be given access to all open positions. When you find a position of interest, you may contact the church directly through the Pastoral Search tools, inviting them to review your profile. Churches interested in your profile will follow up accordingly.
