Non-Ministry Employment

Ministry Positions

The Office of Church Ministry seeks to assist students and alumni in finding opportunities for ministry during and after seminary. The office also provides information regarding available positions in Southern Baptist churches and resources relating to search committees.

Hundreds of Southern Baptist churches are located within driving distance of the seminary. The Office of Church Ministry makes every effort to assist these churches and Southwestern students join together in fruitful ministry. In addition, more than a thousand requests are received each year from churches across the United States who are interested in students and alumni to fill church staff positions.

Southwestern Seminary recognizes (1) that God’s leadership is primary in the calling of ministers, (2) that each individual is responsible for securing opportunities for ministry, whether in a volunteer or staff capacity, and (3) that local churches, as autonomous entities, have the initiative in seeking a minister, while the seminary provides helpful information and guidance when requested.

Students desiring assistance in finding a ministry position should consult the Office of Church Ministry for assistance establishing a student/alumni ministry profile. Resumes will be shared with Southern Baptist churches, institutions, and agencies (via e-mail) upon their request through SBC Church Connection. Interviews between churches and candidates are arranged by the two when the churches make contact with those candidates of their choosing. All Non-SBC opportunities will be posted on the seminary website’s job list.

The Office of Church Ministry's primary objective is to bring people together who, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, determine that a relationship will be profitable to the work of the local church or the denominational agency for God’s kingdom.
