Congregations Seeking Pastors
The Covenant Network encourages churches engaged in a pastor search to make full use of the PCUSA’s Church Leadership Connection and of their presbytery’s Executive Presbyter, Stated Clerk, and Committee on Ministry.
The following congregations that share Covenant Network’s vision of the church have openings on their pastoral staffs. Their Pastor Nominating Committees are particularly interested in considering candidates with a faithfully inclusive understanding of the church’s ministry and mission. They have also indicated full openness to consideration of openly LGBTQIA+ candidates. Recommendations and self-referrals may be addressed to the PNC Chair.
If you are an LGBTQIA+ candidate or minister seeking a call and would like assistance navigating the process, information on congregations who are seeking a pastor, or any other support, please contact Executive Director Brian Ellison.
