How clergy may submit and direct their materials:


Clergy applying for congregations that are calling a RECTOR are asked to send a cover letter and their Office for Transition Ministry (OTM) Portfolio directly to the chair of the parish search committee with a copy of the communication also sent to the Rev. Canon John D. Betit, Canon to the Ordinary and Diocesan Transition Minister at: jbetit@dioceseli.org. Clergy submitting their OTM are required to complete all 8 narrative questions and are strongly encouraged to upload sermon materials in the connections section.


Candidates who are applying to congregations where a PRIEST IN CHARGE is being appointed are asked to send cover letter and Office for Transition Ministry (OTM) Portfolio directly to the The Rev. Canon John Betit at jbetit@dioceseli.org.




Receiving Names.   Parishes listed as receiving names have completed their self-study and are free to receive names from applicants (n.b. please carefully review the above process for submitting names).


Self-Study.   Parishes listed as in self-study are in the process of assessing needs, defining leadership, and creating their profiles. Clergy with an interest in one of these self-study parishes may contact Canon Betit but should not contact the parish search committee until the parish is listed as “receiving names.”
