Connecting Churches & Pastors

Countless churches across America close their doors each year leaving communities in darkness and Christians without a place to worship. Many other churches will meet this week without a pastor to lead and care for them.

Open Door Ministries connects churches with pastors and provides counsel and direction throughout the pastor search process. Since 2018, we have assisted over 80 churches in calling a pastor, resulting in church doors remaining open!

Individualized Care For Each Church


Mike & Heather Gross have served together in various ministries for over twenty-six years. In 2018, The Gross's established Open Door Ministries with a burden for Bible-believing churches in America that are without a pastor. Since they started this ministry, the Lord has allowed them to be a part of placing over 80 pastors!


Open Door Ministries writes and places pastoral search ads on our website as well as on several social media platforms. A current list of each church we are assisting can be found on our Placement page.

If your church is seeking a pastor, please contact us for more information on how Open Door Ministries can be a help to you. 


"Bro. Gross and his family were such a blessing in our church during our time of need as we found ourselves in a pastoral search. His expertise and leadership, all while pointing continually to seeking God’s leading, provided a calm confidence as we walked through these unknown waters. Under his leadership as interim pastor, we saw the church not only “survive” spiritually but actually move forward and grow in Christ. His burden for the struggling local church is very evident and I believe God is using his ministry greatly. I would urge you to consider supporting this great work and join together as we combat Satan’s daily attacks on God’s design for spreading His Gospel...the local church."
