Clergy Seeking Ministry Within ABC of the Dakotas
In the ABC of the Dakotas, one of our Associate Executive Ministers or the Executive Minister is the starting point for a transition in ministry. Contact one of them to indicate your desire to move.
We will ask for an updated ABPS profile. Committees are trained to interpret and use the ABPS profile and not having one will not give you and your ministry even consideration by the committee. You will be asked to sign ABC-USA Covenant and Code of Ethics and a Self Disclosure and Release Form.
You will be asked what kind of ministry you feel God is leading you toward, and what kind of setting will be best for you and your family. Also you will need to have considered what your financial needs are.
Your ABPS resume and the information you have shared will be presented to the churches our staff feels will best suit your needs and qualifications. If you are aware of a Dakotas church searching for clergy and you would like to be considered by that church, ask a staff person to have your name submitted. We ask that you not contact the church directly, or through another person, but instead go through a staff person.
A quality move can take time. Starting your search before you might have to leave your current situation is essential. When you are considering a move, please use our Ministerial Leaders Transitions Handbook. It contains useful information and worksheets to assist you in your decision.
