Over the next few weeks, we’ll be addressing some key points to filling a position with the RIGHT leader. There are a number of things that need to happen BEFORE you begin reviewing resumes and interviewing candidates:

The first step is a Needs Assessment. Several questions you should ask:
•     Why is the position open?
•     Should it be filled?
•     Does the position (still) match the core values/DNA/mission/etc. of the church and that specific ministry?
•     Is this the highest priority position you need to fill?

Just because someone resigns or transitions out of a position doesn’t mean it needs to be immediately filled. It also doesn’t mean the role, responsibilities, reporting structure, etc. hasn’t changed.

Take a few moments to consider these issues prior to starting your process. The next step is Profiling the Job
