Converge P3 is about supporting candidates.

Are you ready?

Are you starting to think about your next church? Churches often have to evaluate 100 or more resumes in varying styles and level of detail. How do you stand out? How can you clearly articulate who you are? How can you help a search team get to know who you are more quickly? And most importantly, how can you know if you are even a good fit for that church?

You could be with your next church for a long time. It’s important to get this right.

A pastoral search is much more than simply hiring someone for a job. Successful pastor placements are the result of knowing the questions to ask, knowing what makes a good fit for a long term relationship, and access to a proven process to bring it all together.

What is P3

Converge is passionate about our churches and our pastors. We believe assisting churches in finding their next pastor is one of the most important services we provide and we’ve been doing it for years with hundreds of churches. P3 brings our acquired knowledge and experience, into a step-by-step process delivered through a simple online tool. Candidates and churches answer the same in-depth questions to explore who they are and thoroughly describe their beliefs and preferences, each forming a comprehensive profile. Candidates are further able to describe themselves through personality and leadership assessments that provides insight into the candidate’s behaviors, responses, challenges and strengths. When the complete picture is painted, the team more quickly discovers the candidate’s individual story. Converge is then able to filter candidates based on the church profile, evaluating if there is a potential good fit, then supporting the team’s further exploration.
