Major Mindset Shifts

ministry sustainability

without money stress

You want to work hard, provide for your family and lead a ministry that you can be proud of but you have no idea how to expand your vocational options and earn more money outside of the church. This is how we help.

One major problem

professional rebranding

without the headache

As a pastor, you have only ever worked in churches and have no idea how to convey your valuable skills in a way that makes sense. This makes you feel paralyzed and frustrated because you know that you could break into the workforce, earn more money and meet community members outside the church but don’t know where to start on the job hunt.

Practice, not theory

training & coaching

from proven practitioners

I understand how difficult it is to change industries and move from being a Pastor to a Marketplace Professional because I did it in 2017. I made the leap from a Pastor to a Management Consultant and Covocational Church Planter and paved a career path for myself where I can serve in the church, work and earn in the marketplace, provide for my family and have helped thousands of others to do the same.

Increased earning power

As someone in full time ministry, your earning potential is limited by the amount of money that comes into the offering plate every week. Even though God’s people are generous, as churches shrink and cost of living climbs, to expect the offering plate to fund your family’s needs is not always a long term winning bet.

Sustainable ministry

In March 2022, Barna released research that said 42% of pastors  have considered quitting ministry. The largest perpetrators were the stress of the job and loneliness and isolation, both of which can be remedied by a covocational approach to ministry that removes the stress to live off a church salary and the isolation of being a solo pastor who feels the need to do everything themselves.

success stories


"I went with the resume rewrite, got my resume within 2 days and went home that night and applied for 10 jobs. Out of those 10 jobs I reached out to, 3 responded within a day...after my interview I got offered the job the next day.."


"Mark and Eric did a great job helping me rewrite my resume, helping me understand what my role was as an executive pastor and how that translated back into the marketplace. Now, I'm happy to say that I'm at a job where I make more than I did as a minister. I have benefits that I never had as a minister. I'm able to provide for my family like I never couldand I still get to be an active part of a local church and serve in leadership as well..."


"With Eric's help I landed a COO position at a local non-profit... I Help Pastors Get Jobs is appropriately named and I'm so grateful for their help."

Questions pastors usually ask

What sort of jobs can I even qualify for?

We advise 4 career paths to begin exploring as a pastor transitioning to the marketplace based on your skills and experience. They are Nonprofit, Project Management, Learning and Development or Sales. You can watch a free video on how to identify which skill set is best for you by clicking here

What is the typical time frame it takes to get a job?

This varies vastly on the intensity in which you network, apply and re-skill. In general, we suggest 6 months to be a realistic timeline from the time you start applying to jobs until the time an offer is made. It can take considerably longer based on preparing yourself for the job search such as navigating what type of job you want, creating a resume, networking, building a LinkedIn profile. We can help with all of that, just schedule a call.

What services do you provide?

We have three tiers based on your needs as a pastor seeking to make a change. Our entry level product is a Masterclass which is a self paced learning path that teaches the entire IHPGJ framework in 9 hours. It also includes digital assets such as a resume template, cover letter template and power statement repository that you can copy and paste into your resume. The next tier up is a Masterclass, plus a Resume Rewrite. You receive the Masterclass and we send you a customized resume based on your ministry experience and a job you are interested in. The highest tier includes the Masterclass, Resume as well as a cover letter and 45 minute, 1:1 coaching call with Eric. If you are ready to make a purchase, simply head over to our services page.

Will I be looked over simply because I am a pastor?

Unfortunately most companies are risk averse when hiring and pastors as career changers can be deemed as a risk given they do not have the traditional background. In the IHPGJ framework, we advise pastors to rebrand their ministry skills without using "church-y" language, to build their network and capitalize on referrals and coaching on how to navigate the interview process as it is vastly different than church interviews.

How long does it take if I take the next steps?

When you submit payment for a Resume Rewrite Package, we will provide you a link to the Masterclass and request your current resume and a link to a job of interest. Once you submit those to our team, we provide the resume rewrite within 48 business hours. The coaching call can typically happen within a week, though you can have that whenever is convenient to your schedule and timeline.
