So, assuming a 4: Along these lines, please STOP having people who are "technically" not on the SC staff members, shuttle drivers, students, random faculty who tag along to meals, etc. Mention your seminary training and credentials, including pastoral counseling.

Please pull your ad from the departmental website when the position is cancelled or filled.
I agree with much of the above, although I know some SCs will give weak excuses about not having the administrative support to send letters or whatever. I wish you the very best in doing what is best as you hire your friends.
