Helpful Web Links and Advice in Job Hunting

The advice and links below came from a Ministry Minor alum who found them helpful in his successful job hunt...

  • -do your best to visit a church more than once if possible for worship
  • -talk to a few people who attend the church, not just staff
  • -explore every inch of the church website and what comes up in a Google search
  • -investigate the relationship between the church and its denomination. Is thre a lot of change going on!
