MinistryLink

MinistryLink is a web-based service that connects ministers with Churches of Christ. With MinistryLink, churches can view ministers’ resumes, post job openings, and connect with ministers. Ministers can upload resumes, browse church profiles and job postings, and connect with churches.

Register for an Account – Minister Looking for a Job
  1. Complete the registration form on this page.
    Click the “Register” button, fill out the registration form, and click “Submit” at the bottom. Not
    all questions are required, but the more you fill out, the more churches will know about you.
  2. Verify your email address.
    You will receive an email message with a link to verify your email address (for security
    purposes); follow the instructions in the email.
  3. Wait to receive confirmation that your account registration is complete.
    Once the Siburt Institute staff have approved and finalized your account, you will receive an email message with your password. The email will also contain helpful information about uploading resumes, browsing churches’ profiles and job postings, and using other MinistryLink features. This step may take up to 3 business days due to staffing restrictions.
  4. Use your new MinistryLink account!
    If you wish to browse job openings without letting anyone know you’re looking for a new job,
    simply do not upload a resume or any other documents, and you will not be “visible” to any
    other MinistryLink users.
