Bryan, OH (PRWEB) November 17, 2004
Today over 300,000 churches in the United States employ well over half a million professional pastors and ministry workers.
LifeWay.com and ChurchStaffing.com today announce the launch of a full-service job and placement service for churches and pastors. With the introduction of the Lifeway Ministry Personnel Center, professional clergy and churches of all sizes will be able to tap into a great number of online resources designed to make the time of job transition go much easier.
"The internet provides the perfect environment for the ministry job search process," according to Todd Rhoades of ChurchStaffing.com. "Using LifeWay's new Ministry Personnel Center, church search committees are able to add their job opening to a database of over 700 current church and ministry job openings. They can also search nearly 6,000 ministry resumes at the new website."
According to Rhoades, there are also a great number of services provided for the ministry job seeker. They can search the internet's largest database of church job openings, add their resume, and even have access to low-cost resume tune-up and resume re-writing services. "It really brings the job seeker and the churches seeking workers together quickly, providing nearly instant contact. It allows churches to broaden their job search to a national scope with ease," said Rhoades.
Other services include a unique range of church personnel printed resources, pre-employment background check services, and managed search options for larger churches.
