Finding the Names of Prospective Pastors
The Committee on Home Missions and Church Extension has been assigned by the General Assembly with the responsibility of assisting congregations of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church which are looking for a pastor. For that purpose the Committee collects and distributes Ministerial Information Forms of interested Orthodox Presbyterian ministers, licentiates and men from other NAPARC churches.
The Vacant Pulpits List
The Committee on Home Missions and Church Extension maintains and posts 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 your congregation has recently lost its pastor and you are their representative in the search for the man of God’s choosing to be their new pastor, we invite you to request that your church be included by using the Vacant Pulpit List input form.
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.
