Home > Call Process

This process is designed to address situations in which a pastor seeks to secure a call to another ministry or a congregation seeks to fill a pastoral vacancy.  The NALC Call Process Manual provides the necessary direction to allow those impacted to navigate through the call process.

In order to begin the call process, contact the Assistant to the Bishop for Ministry and Ecumenism for further instructions by email or 614-777-5709.
