Registration - Get Started

Welcome to CBF's Reference and Referral Service

CBF LeaderConnect is designed to help churches share clearly what they seek in a candidate and to help candidates reveal in detail their qualifications and preferences so that the most appropriate matches can be made. It is our hope and prayer that God will use this tool to bring God's servant leaders and God's churches together according to God's will.

The following form contains the questions you will be asked in order to place your resume into our system. Questions in bold print are required. There may be some questions which will not apply to you and you which will leave blank. You will be able to move about in the online questionnaire by clicking on the tabs at the top of the screen or by clicking "continue and save" button at the bottom of the screen.

Developing the profile requires that we ask a number of questions that help in refining the matching process so that it is as accurate as possible. Click here to print out a PDF of the questions prior to entering your information if you wish to do so.

If you do not have time to complete the entire form, feel free to save your information at any point. You can login at a later time and finish your profile.

By clicking Save at the bottom of the form you are indicating your understanding of the terms and conditions. Please read our terms and conditions carefully.

Christ offers the gift of salvation to all. We witness to everyone, knowing that anyone can potentially be saved if he or she will only confess to being a sinner, repent, and trust in Jesus. Each person decides whether or not to trust in Christ for salvation.
Salvation is for those whom God has chosen ahead of time to be saved. We don’t know who those people are, so we witness to everyone, knowing that those whom God has chosen will respond and be saved.
As well as serving as spiritual leader of the church, the pastor is responsible for the direction of the church and makes decisions regarding church affairs without relying much on votes by the church as a whole or by congregation-elected committees.
While serving as the spiritual leader of the church, the pastor expects the congregation as a whole to retain much responsibility for considering and voting on significant church matters in church-wide business meetings and through committees elected by the congregation.
