Illinois is an exciting and challenging frontier for pastors and church staff. Many churches here will welcome fresh leadership from enthusiastic and evangelistic leadership. IBSA will be glad to help connect churches with potential pastors and ministry staff.

Pastor Search Team Help
IBSA wants to help your newly formed pastor search team or committee approach their task wisely, prayerfully, and successfully. We created a seven session training course to help your church, from grieving the loss of your previous pastor all the way to welcoming your new pastor and setting him up for success.
The sessions are available to work through on your own or with the help of an IBSA trained guide. Watch this introduction to the course from Nate Adams and Mark Emerson, then email MarkEmerson@IBSA.org to request access and ask questions.
