Congregational vacancies

Non-pastoral job openings

Recently people received email messages that were supposedly from district executives. If you receive an unusual request, a message with awkward language, or something else suspicious saying it’s from a Church of the Brethren staff member or District Executive, please check the email address. Staff members mostly use email addresses that end with brethren.org. District Executive email addresses vary, but the correct ones are listed on this page. Please do not reply to suspicious messages or click on the links. You can mark them as spam or junk, which will affect senders’ ability to get through. You can also fill out this form: https://support.google.com/mail/contact/abuse.

If you are the church board/leadership team chair of a Church of the Brethren congregation that is entering a time of pastoral transition, please contact your district executive/minister, who will assist you in the process of seeking and calling a new pastor. This process includes the selection of a search committee, filling out a congregational profile, entering it into the placement system, making contact with pastoral candidates, interviewing, and calling your new pastor.

If you are a Church of the Brethren pastor with an interest in serving a congregation on this list, please be in touch with your own district executive/minister, who will assist you in the process of pastoral placement in the Church of the Brethren. This process includes filling out a profile, entering it into the placement system, and making contact with another district office.

If you are not a ministerial leader in the Church of the Brethren and have an interest in serving the denomination, please email the Office of Ministry.
