Guidebook for Pastor Search Committees
Over the years several churches have contacted Dr. DeVries' office at the School of Biblical & Theological Studies to ask for help in securing pulpit supply and pastoral candidates In many cases, they would say "I am the chairman of the pastor search committee but I do not know what I am supposed to be doing." This book was written to help. Over 100 men were interviewed who had served on a search committee, over 100 pastors were interviewed, and several "lay people" and seminary faculty members were consulted to develop the approach outlined in this step-by-step manual. All forms and documents needed to carry out the process are included in the guidebook.
