Converge P3 is about helping churches.

Are you ready?

It’s easy to get quantity when it comes to resumes, but how will your team measure and evaluate the quality of the candidate? Any search team could receive 100 or more resumes, in varying styles and level of detail from the internet today. Where do you begin? How will your team filter these candidates? Do you have time to pour over all of them and adequately process them? Do you even know the questions to ask to get a complete picture of each candidate and know if they are a good fit for your church?

You want your next pastor to be with you 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 that brings it all together.

What is P3

Converge is passionate about our churches. We believe assisting churches in finding their next pastor is one of the most important ministries we provide and we’ve been doing it for years with hundreds of churches. Pastor Placement Process brings our acquired knowledge and experience, into a step-by-step process delivered through a simple, yet comprehensive, online guide. Churches and candidates answer the same in-depth questions to explore who they are and thoroughly describe their beliefs and preferences, each forming a comprehensive profile. Your Converge Consultant will then be able to filter candidates based on your church profile, elevating priority candidates for your team’s further exploration. Instead of pouring over unclear and dissimilar resumes trying to compare information, your team is guided in evaluating detailed information and analyzing candidates that have taken the same types of assessments. Promising candidates that your church discovers outside of the P3 can be merged in for consistent comparison.
