    Matching Pastoral Candidates and Churches

    A Guide for Search Committees and Candidates

    A guide to both sides of the candidate process

    With humor and insight born of experience, Joseph Umidi helps candidates approach a selection process by clarifying their 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, and evaluating a candidate's strength in meeting those needs. Eleven appendixes provide key model documents that will help the decision-making process.
