  • Help - We have collected a number of articles on the "church search." Some of these are available as links on our Vocational Resources page. 

Jack Causey is the CBFNC contact person for reference and referral. He has been scheduling monthly appointments for ministers to meet with him at our offices in Winston-Salem. Contact Jim Hylton at (336) 759-3456 or (888) 822-1944 to schedule an appointment. You can also reach Jack by email at


CBFNC is not "connected" to other CBF organizations. That is to say, if you send a reference request to the national CBF, they do not send that information on to CBFNC. So, at a minimum you will want to send the profile form both to CBFNC and CBF. Other states also have reference and referral contact persons. You may want to contact them to distribute your resume, as well. Click here for a list of other contacts.

CBF has a new resource called LeaderConnect-CBF. This tool, a resume-matching system (provided at no charge), will greatly enhance the efficiency and capability of their reference and referral service for both church search committees and for candidates.

Most search committees are new to the search process. Most are also unaware of changes in the Baptist world. Part of the way we try to help you is to educate churches, sometimes beginning with their search committees.

We join you in your prayers. This is, after all, a spiritual journey!
