Supporting Information For Faculty Applicants

Elements to include:

  • Official application for employment. During your application you will be asked about your beliefs. Please read through the SAGU Beliefs prior to answering related parts of the application.
  • Full Resume
Once we've reviewed your application and resume and determined that you will be moving to the next step of the process, we'll reach out to request the following items: 

  1. Copies of transcripts from all higher education institutions (must be from a regionally accredited school). During preliminary interviews, we may photocopy these transcripts. However, as your candidacy formalizes, we'll need official transcripts.
  2. A 3-5 page excerpt of a paper you completed for any graduate-level work.
  3. A written expression of your philosophy of Christian Higher Education. 
  4. Two letters of reference, including one pastoral reference, if available. (E.g. If you attend a mega church, you may or may not know the senior pastor, so it is acceptable to ask any minister familiar with your faith to write a letter of reference for you.)

Additionally, for candidates applying for Church Ministries positions: 1.) an audio recording of an average sermon or classroom presentation, and 2.) a statement from the district secretary confirming your credential is in good standing if you are a credentialed minister.
