Toledo UBF Search Procedure for a Part-time Intern Shepherd

Summary:

The Toledo UBF Leadership Council will serve as the Search committee for the selection of a part-time intern shepherd (male or female). Our goal is to prayerfully seek God’s will in the life of the church to build and expand God’s work. We pray for a young-spirited leader who has a desire to help serve and grow our campus ministry, church, discipleship, and outreach at the University of Toledo. We are also open to someone who could potentially serve Sunday worship service in praise and worship or in message delivery once a month or be willing to grow into doing this. We pray for a person filled with the Holy Spirit who loves Jesus Christ and God’s word. The procedures stipulated below will be our guidelines for the selection process:
