The match between personality characteristics with job description will affect individual happiness when carrying out their duties. Likewise, pastors who have to carry out various tasks for which they are responsible. This study aims to analyze the suitability of the job description with the personality of prospective pastors in one of the tribal churches in Indonesia. The needs profile was revealed using Edward Personal Preference Schedule. In this tribal church organization the job description of the pastor was as follows: (a) serve as the main minister and church leader, (b) equip members to serve (c) Serves as overseers for organists and music leaders, Sunday school administrators, and various sections in organizations in the church (d) plan and conduct services, preach the word of God, serve the sacrament (e) serve as advisory members to all official groups in the congregation. The research respondents were 96 prospective pastors who came from the Batak Toba tribe. The results of this study indicate that the need of aggression of respondents tends to be low and this supports the implementation of duties as a priest. The needs that are classified as moderate and supportive are the need of deference, need of order, need of interception, need of dominance and need of nurturance.
