Searching for a pastor

Appointment moderators

Our team of Moderators are available to give experienced guidance to churches that are seeking pastors.

A moderator can bring a wealth of experience and a clear, thorough, timely and customisable process to your Pastoral Search Team.

An outline of our recommended process can be downloaded here. We strongly recommend the appointment of a moderator at the very beginning of the process. To request a moderator, contact Melinda Cousins – Director of Ministries via the button below.

A model “Letter of Appointment” has been drafted by the Baptist Centre to help churches in finalising the appointment of Pastoral staff. This letter had been assessed by our solicitors and conforms to the standards as set out by the Fair Work Act and the National Employment Standards. It is available in Word Document format and can be accessed HERE by right clicking and selecting “Save Target As” from the list.
