Transition Ministry

The Office for Transition Ministry guides individuals (lay and ordained), congregations, and institutions through their times of discernment and calling.

The Office for Transition Ministry (OTM) provides support to clergy, laity, bishops, and Diocesan Transition Ministers throughout The Episcopal Church. Along with the Board for Transition Ministry, this office analyzes trends in clergy calls and congregational data and provides support to those in search and call processes.

OTM Portfolio database

It’s Office and Board for Transition Ministry’s vision that this database will capture and highlight the significant gifts and skills embodied by the clergy and laity of the Episcopal Church. With our gifts, skills, and calls to ministry identified and shared we are poised to enter into ministry transitions with both confidence and vulnerability.

Diocesan Transition Ministers

contact list

Diocesan Transition Ministers (DTMs) are diocesan executives who oversee ministry transitions, clergy placement and deployment, and general personnel matters in the Church. You can download the list of DTMs in PDF format. (Updated May 7, 2024)

Our goal with this document is to invite the church to think out loud about how we bring ordained leaders to our churches. We look at 10 trends in transition ministry and invite conversation about how these trends affect our various contexts.
