 As we continue to promote health and awareness related to mental health initiatives, we wanted to offer a self-evaluation resource.  The below site allows you to answer a few simple questions to gauge where you might need help.  It is not intended to be used as a substitute for a visit with a healthcare professional, but only to help identify if you might need additional resources.  Once you take the assessment – you will be provided a score with comments on next steps.

Ministry Job Board

The Georgia Baptist Mission Board offers a free service to Southern Baptist Churches through georgiabaptistjobs.com.  Churches may post various ministry positions and pastors can post their resume.  Job descriptions, requirements, and instructions to contact each church are available for each posting. A nationwide resource is the Southern Baptist Convention JobSearch.  Neither the Southern Baptist or Georgia Baptist Convention hosts the job offerings. Any inquiries should be through the contact information provided on the job listing.

For churches that have an open ministry position and would like to submit a job description, or those looking for an open ministry position at a church:

Note: For the SBC site, you will need your SBCID Number.  If you are a new church and don’t have an SBCID number yet, or forgot your SBCID number, please contact Laura Simms, lsimms@gabaptist.org or 770-936-5362
