Call and Discernment

“The gifts Christ gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.” – Ephesians 4:11-12

Navigating Search and Call

Clergy seeking a new calling should have an updated profile and can use the Ministerial Opportunity search page to explore current openings. For more information on specific positions, connect directly with the congregation’s Conference.

Members In Discernment

Exploring your call to ministry can be exciting and a little frightening. It is not a process anyone ever has to navigate alone. The United Church of Christ has a very clear and thorough process. The process begins with membership in a local congregation, then connecting with the congregation’s Association. Ordination and “standing” are handled by Associations. SCNC is made up of 4 Associations: Northern, Central, Southern, and Eastern.
