Content in the Appointments section


Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of congregations, communities and the world. Our objectives are to assign clergy to ministries to spread scriptural holiness and grow vital congregations. We assign clergy for the opportunity and privilege to faithfully serve a congregation for at least seven years, with the norm being 10 or more years for clergy beyond their second appointment. From time to time, because a situation warrants or if there is an urgent and critical mission need, an appointment will be less than seven years.
