CLC has updated the system to include authorization to refer names for Advanced Search Matching. Call Seekers must update their PIF Part I indicating whether they would like to participate in this new feature. Advanced Searches are local searches requested by presbytery staff for temporary positions such as Interim, Supply and other temporary pastor positions not listed on the CLC Opportunity Search. Advanced Searches match for persons that meet the position type, experience level, salary requirements and geographical choice of the calling organizations.
