Ministry Placement

Are you seeking staff for your church or ministry? Are you beginning a pastoral search process to fill an open position for pastor, associate pastor, youth pastor, director of worship, etc.?

The Office of Supervised Ministries at Trinity connects you with qualified students seeking field experience as part of their academic programs, as well as recent graduates and alumni who are actively seeking placement. We work with churches and ministries from a variety of denominations (and independent churches) in filling both full-time and part-time positions, as well as arranging field experience opportunities for our students.

Full-Time Positions

Churches and Christian organizations seeking to fill full-time positions should complete the  Ministry Information Form. The details provided will be forwarded directly to qualified candidates who match your requirements. Those who are interested in the position will then send their résumés to your designated contact person. Some positions may be posted on our alumni and internal websites for TEDS graduates and current students to view. For guidance on the process, or for further information about any candidate, please feel free to contact our Placement Office at [email protected]  or call (847) 317-8030 for more information.

Part-Time Positions

Positions are considered “part-time” if they are paid positions for which there are no academic requirements met or mentoring taking place. Since these positions vary widely in scope, hours and compensation, we post all of them on our internal website accessible to all TIU students, both college and seminary. These positions are usually within a reasonable commuting distance of one of our TIU campuses (Deerfield, South Chicago, Miami) and are appropriate for current students. To post a part-position, please complete and submit our Part-time Opportunity Form.
