Just a few ideas on how to handle a first interview. You don’t need to cover everything, but cover as much as you can thinking “do we move to the next level or not”

I recommend an hour or so: 

  • Introduce yourself
  • Set an agenda
  • Tell him a little about you and the church
  • Ask him about his background, ministry experience, family
  • Talk a bit about the position/vision/future
  • Let him ask you some questions
  • Thank him for his time and let him know you’ll be in touch soon to discuss next steps
  • FOLLOW UP – let him know what you decide within a day or so

What do you do on a first interview?
