    Confirming the Pastoral Call

    A Guide to Matching Candidates and Congregations

    With humor and insight born of experience, Joseph Umidi tells candidates how to approach a selection process by clarifying personal vision for ministry, connecting heart-to-heart with decision makers, and asking the right people the right questions. Search committee members will find guidance in analyzing a church's readiness for change, determining what is most needed now, and judging a candidate's strength in meeting those needs. Eleven appendixes provide key model documents that will help the decision-making process.
    Joseph L. Umidi (D.Min., Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is professor of Practical Theology at Regent University School of Divinity in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Over the past twenty-five years he has enjoyed several pastorates and church-planting seasons. He continually equips and matches emerging leaders through internships and as a ministry consultant to a variety of churches and ministry organizations.
