Office of Graduate Placement

Graduate placement is a unique function of The Master’s Seminary. Because of its emphasis on the local church, and the training of its graduates, many churches look to TMS first to fill their pulpits. Additionally, students endeavoring to have the best opportunities to serve nationally or oversees have much support as they develop their philosophy of ministry and make preparations to begin the candidating process.

Carl A. Hargrove, Director of Graduate Placement
Phone: 818-909-5757


Carl is a graduate of The Master’s Seminary, having earned M.Div. and Th.M. degrees. He is also completing his Doctor of Ministry program. He is a certified counselor with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC) and an adjunct faculty member in Pastoral Ministry. Carl works diligently to ensure TMS men are “placeable” at the end of their time here, not only so that they may find a church, but so that the church that receives them finds a qualified shepherd. It is important that you begin thinking about placement options long before graduation. Give the Placement Office a call early on in your studies to begin thinking of the ways you can be developing your skills and abilities in preparation for full-time ministry.

Placing the right men in the right churches for the cause of Christ.

Match a TMS graduate to your church’s ministry opportunity. The Placement Department can help you find the right pastor for your church by dynamically matching TMS Graduates to your church profile.
