SENIOR PASTOR SEARCHES
That depends! (How’s that for a consultant’s answer?)
Some of the pace depends on you (how aggressively you are searching for your new role. Some depends on the church’s structure and how quickly they are wanting to fill a position.
A ‘normal’ search can take 90-120 days on average. (plus add on a bit of time for actual relocation) . Some searches, of course, go much longer or are wrapped up more quickly.
Chemistry Staffing is a church staff search firm that works with churches to help them find long-term healthy fits for their staff.

Chemistry is currently working with about 25 churches to help them find their healthy, long-term staff members.
That makes Chemistry much smaller than some search firms, but larger than others. We’re small enough to take individual care with each candidate that is part of our process; and large enough to gain the trust and respect of some great churches (some large, some small) that have entrusted us with their search process.
It costs nothing to submit your profile and resume to us for consideration.
We are hired by churches to help them find great candidates like you. That means the churches pay all of our expenses for the search, allowing us to work with you ‘for free’!
