Office of Graduate Placement

The Master’s Seminary is committed to local churches. We do not exist simply so that we can graduate a certain amount of students, but rather our goal is that every graduate of The Master’s Seminary find a ministry. Because of this, we have a unique emphasis on placing graduates within churches. We provide an opportunity for churches looking to fill a pastoral position to contact reliable, faithful candidates. Further, we provide support for graduates currently searching for a pastoral position until they are placed within a church.

Find a Pastor for Your Church

If your church is seeking to fill a pastoral position—we’re here to help. We have designed a system to connect you with our graduates who are in the process of candidating for pastoral positions. To get started, please set up a profile through the link below.  Our office will be in communication with you throughout the process.
