If your congregation finds itself in the midst of a pastoral transition whether temporary or permanent (retirement, new call, health concerns, disability) please be in touch with the Committee on Ministry leadership so that we can assist you. There is information in the Committee on Ministry handbook about transitions of various types and ways that we can assist. It is important to be in touch with us as soon as information about a transition is known.
For ministry transitions, an interim/transitional pastor will be needed. Please see our Committee on Ministry page for information about interim searches. This is a process that the Committee on Ministry must assist with.
