Status Update: Current Matching Opportunities

Chemistry Staffing works with churches all over the country, helping them find great candidates for their current ministry openings. But we can’t care about helping churches find healthy, long-term fits without first and foremost caring about the candidates we are trying to place. At Chemistry Staffing, we care about you. You’re special, you’re unique, and your valuable. And we’re here to help you through the search process however we can. The information on this page will tell you more about Chemistry, the current list of churches that we’re working with, and get you started down the road of finding a great next, best fit.

Frequently Asked Questions...

We want to do the very best we can to communicate with you during your search.  This page will allow you to see all of the current job openings that we are working on as well as the current status of each opening. You can check this page often as it is the definitive place that we update our work. We share regular updates here on each position rather than sending an email notification. Below are some additional questions and answers that we receive from candidates often.

Why do you ask yes/no questions on the assessments?

If we ask on a Likert scale (1 to 10)… all we get is 4s, 5s, and 6s.  Everyone gravitates toward the middle. We ask churches the exact same questions.  Same yes/no. We ask yes/no questions to get gut reactions and it really does work to get a quick, initial synopsis of what kind of church you would be good in.  We’re trying to find an initial 30,000-foot level fit in four areas: theology, ministry philosophy, personality, and skills/abilities. So… as much as you may hate answering yes or no, they really do work for us and may very well help us find you someplace that might be a great future fit.

I'm confused. What jobs am I being considered for?

The great thing about our approach is that once you’ve filled out your profile and the assessments, you are automatically considered for all the open positions and churches that we are currently working with (or will be working with in the future).  This is good news because it means that we will constantly be attempting to match your profile and assessments with an opening and church that would be a great potential match for you. Of course, we attempt to match according to your position category, your denomination, your relocation preference, plus your overall profile, resume and assessment answers.

I applied for a job and have heard NOTHING from you!

Working with a staffing company like Chemistry Staffing is a little different than working with a specific church.  When you add your profile to our system (even if it was for a particular position), we try to match you with not just the individual church you applied to, but also other churches that we may be working with.  While you may be interested in a particular church, it could be that your assessment and profile did not match what the church was looking for. If and when we find a potential match for you, we will reach out to you to have a personal one-on-one initial interview.

But I'm not really looking right now...

We’re constantly signing on new churches and positions. In fact, many of our candidates are actually ‘passively’ searching, meaning they fill out a profile so that we can be watching for potential great fits in the future. That might be next week or next year. We encourage you to keep your profile active in our database. We’ll only contact you when/if we find a church that would be a great potential healthy fit for YOU.

Who do you share my information with?

The short answer is… no one… unless we first ask your permission.  We don’t post your information anywhere. We don’t sell your data. We simply keep it in our internal database until we find what we think might be a good match for you.  And when we do, we first reach out to you to have an actual conversation, talk about the church and position, and gauge your interest BEFORE we ever submit your name or resume to a church.

Why haven't you found me a job yet?

We work with a few churches at a time and we reach out to you when we think we find a church that matches your theology, personality, philosophy of ministry, and skills and abilities based on your assessments, profile and resume.  Sometimes that can take a little time. That’s the power of having your information in our database for the long-term. We don’t guarantee to find anyone a job. Our role is to try to match you up with one of the churches that we’re working with. But we’re just a small piece of the puzzle.  If you are actively searching for a new ministry position, don’t ever put all your eggs in one basket. We’ll be in contact when we find something we think will be a great fit for you. In the meantime, we encourage you to take responsibility for your personal job search. You can always find a great number of positions that are new each day at websites like

You mention that you try to match for long-term fit. What does that look like?

We fully agree with Dr. Thom Rainer when he says that few pastors make it to the ‘fruitful’ years of ministry… around the five-year mark. This happens many times because they were never a good match, to begin with, or because the church and the pastor don’t have a good, healthy ministry plan to work on the same page. Our approach is to strategically work with local church leaders to find a healthy, long-term staff fit that will actually move the dial when it comes to effective local ministry. (That means that we’d like to see you stay at your next church for AT LEAST five years).

Does Chemistry Staffing have any open positions?

We don’t have any full-time positions that are open.  We are always looking for individuals that have their own personal network that they can work with to provide referrals.  If that’s something you’d like to discuss, let me know and I can get you some additional information on that.
