Recently my family made a major ministry move.  We had done a move before but never really felt that where we were at was going to be a forever thing.  We had so many dreams that God had placed in our hearts we just really couldn’t find the perfect place that those dreams and vision could come to pass.

As the years went by, I developed a relationship with David Lyons from Minister Search.  I shared my ministry dreams with him and he began to help me navigate through finding the perfect fit for me.  The great thing about the Minister Search team was that they weren’t interested in just placing me at the first church that came along.  David and his team was insistent on finding the perfect match.  He didn’t just want to find me a job or fill a churches position.  They wanted to help create a ministry connection between myself and a church that would be a long term relationship.

Last January I stepped into my role at Northview Church in Carmel, Indiana.  Everything that I was believing God for in a place to minister and more is there.  Because of the ministry of Minister Search, I am now serving in my dream job.  in the 3 short months I have been there God has moved in ways I could never have imagined.  The ministry I am over has grown over 20% in the last month!  We now have over 1000 kids a weekend and 700 volunteers in our program.  God is working in mighty ways and I feel that I am in the most exciting stage of my personal ministry to date.  None of this would have been possible if the team at Minister Search didn’t do what they do.

I will never do another job search on either side of the search again without working with Minister Search.  I know that they connect the right church with the right candidate.  Thank you Minister Search, your ministry has changed my life and I am forever grateful!
