Converge Northwest also helps place pastors with churches, and churches with pastors. One helpful tool we use is the Pastoral Placement Process; also known as P3. P3 is an online tool that assess your skills, gifts, strengths, calling, personality, experience and more. Our churches who need a pastor use the same tool to find you. We believe assisting churches in finding the right leader is one of the most important services we can provide. The same goes for our pastors. We want them in a position where they can grow and be the leader God has called them to be.

P3 was created to provide churches with a methodical, focused system that offers search teams, delivered as a web-based process, a consultant that will make scheduled touchpoints, tools to implement a church survey and ultimately names of candidates fitting your pastoral preferences.

What are the benefits for churches?

  • Easy access to Converge knowledge and experience because no church or search time wants to be an expert on pastor placement.

  • The task-driven process keeps your church search team focused.

  • The process is self-guided so it fits the unique and individual style and culture of your church and team.

  • It’s efficient. The search team’s time is spent getting to know candidates that are potential good fits instead of sorting through stacks of resumes.
