Finding the Locations of Vacant Pulpits
The Committee on Home Missions and Church Extension has been assigned by the General Assembly with the responsibility of posting on this website a Vacant Pulpits List containing the names and contact information of OP churches whose pulpits have been declared vacant by their presbyteries. If you are looking for a ministry position in the OPC, downloading and reviewing the Vacant Pulpits List is a good place to start.
Becoming Known by Congregations Looking for a Pastor
The Committee also assists congregations of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church which are looking for a pastor. For that purpose the Committee collects and distributes Ministerial Information Forms (MIFs) of interested Orthodox Presbyterian ministers, licentiates and men from other NAPARC churches. If you would like to have your MIF on file and distributed to all vacant pulpits as the list is updated, request a Ministerial Information Form here.
Guidelines for Calling a Pastor
The 43rd (1976) General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church requested the Committee on Home Missions and Church Extension to develop guidelines for congregations to follow in discovering, evaluating and calling a pastor. A subcommittee of the Committee on Home Missions and Church Extension studied this request and developed a list of Guidelines for Calling a Pastor for use by the churches and presbyteries.
