Job Opportunities

These services are offered through ECMT to assist you in exploring the possibilities of expressing your ministry in a campus-related setting. In addition, we offer our services to local and state campus ministry boards, both helping them develop their processes for filling vacant ministerial positions and circulating their position announcements to let you know what positions are available.

Essentially, as a broker of this information, our primary service is to send you announcements of current openings together with the descriptions of positions that are provided by the search committees. This service is free of charge. The frequency of these announcements depends on how often we receive them. We will forward announcements to you by Internet immediately upon receiving them. From our experience over the past few years, the number of announcements will vary between 30 and 40 annually.

Once you have received these announcements, if you are interested in the position described and fit the criteria for the person being sought, it is then your responsibility to initiate a contact with the search committee to get additional information you may want, to express your interest in being considered for the position, and to receive from them details on the process of the search and the information their committee wants from you.
