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.
