Transition Ministry

Transition Ministry

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

Bishops and transition ministers can list their open positions, search the database, receive training, and download helpful forms and publications. Clergy, seminarians, and lay leaders are matched by their skills with ministry opportunities in parishes, diocesan offices, and church-related organizations. Congregations are supported throughout the entire search process, from the listing of the position to creating the parish portfolio while providing interim and search process resources.

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.
