Resources for Congregations in Transition
When your congregation finds itself in transition due to a change of call or retirement of a leader, these resources can get you started. For more information, contact the Allegheny Synod Office to schedule a meeting to discuss options.
This manual provides information on forming a call committee and moving through the call process.
This form MUST be completed and sent to the Allegheny Synod Office in order for supply leaders to be scheduled in your congregation.
If your congregation is seeking to call a new pastor, you must complete the ELCA's Ministry Site Profile. This document is a SAMPLE and cannot be used as your profile. The form must be completed online. Schedule a meeting with Pastor Paula Schmitt from the Office of the Bishop for more information.
