Transitional Interim Leadership
For Churches Without Pastors

Each year, all across our country, churches will permanently close their doors, leaving communities in darkness.  Our country cannot afford to lose any more Bible-believing, Gospel-preaching churches.  Please take some time to read more about Open Door Ministries and what we are doing to help keep churches open in America!

Mike & Heather Gross have served together in various ministries for over twenty-four 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 50 pastors!


OPEN DOOR Ministries is assisting several churches as they seek their next pastor. 

We place pastoral search ads in several online locations, collect and review resumes, conduct interviews, and consult with churches to find biblically-qualified candidates that are right for their church and community.


"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."
