Alumni Referral Network


Announcing new process!  Are you a CTS alumni open to the possibility of a new call?  Are you in a congregation searching for a new pastor?  We now have a process in place to help you connect!

From time to time, search committees from churches contact the seminary seeking names of alumni who might be considered the next pastor at their church.  To respond to these calls, we have formed an alumni referral network.   This group of professors and staff will work to supply church search committees who inquire about our alumni with as many names of potential candidates as we can.

For alumni: If you are open to being considered for some of the pastoral opportunities that come to our attention, please email Julie Bailey, Director of Alumni and Church Relations,, and include your PIF or resume, and any other information you think would be helpful, such as geographical boundaries.  Your information will be used discreetly and with confidentiality. This is not an attempt to circumvent the work of the PCUSA Church Leadership Connection process.  It is simply an effort to knowledgeably respond to the requests that come to the seminary.

For churches seeking a pastor: If you are open to a first-call or recent seminary graduate, please email your church’s MIF or job description to Katie Ricks, Associate Director of Vocation and Spiritual Formation:

For churches seeking a pastor with 3 or more years’ experience: please email your church’s MIF or job description to Julie Bailey,
