Congregations, Rostered Ministers, and Supply Persons Regarding Pulpit Supply

This is a list of active and retired pastors, deacons, and seminarians who have identified themselves as open to being pulpit supply in congregations in our synods.  Please note in the chart any special notes and their contact information.  Please contact them directly to make pulpit supply arrangements. Marty Shifflett continues to be a resource and someone congregational leaders are welcome to consult for suggestions of who they might contact for pulpit supply. She can be reached at 717-652-1852, Ext. 115 or via email.

Make sure you communicate with the pulpit supply:

  • date/time of worship
  • address of the church building where worship will take place
  • whether there will be communion and any special notes about worship
  • whether there is a children’s sermon

In advance of the service, share a  bulletin with the pulpit supply so that he/she can be familiar with the order of service. Please make hospitality arrangements in advance for overnight accommodations should the pulpit supply find it necessary.

The honorarium should be presented to the guest immediately following the service.


$180.00 for one service.
$230.00 for two services on the same day.
$280.00 for three or more services on the same day.

Add $50.00 for each additional service (i.e. more than three) Saturday evening and Sunday morning service. For example, four Sunday morning services are $330.00. Also add $70.00 for each additional weekend service other than Sunday morning (i.e. on Saturday evening or Sunday evening). For example, one Saturday evening and two Sunday morning services are $300.00 ($230.00 for the two Sunday services plus $70.00 for the Saturday evening service).

The above schedule applies to Saturday evening, Sunday morning, Sunday evening, weekday and weekday evening services. For example, a single Maundy Thursday evening service is $180.00; a single midweek Wednesday morning service is $180.00; a single Sunday evening service is $180.00.

The mileage reimbursement for each round trip is at the prevailing IRS rate of 62.5 cents per mile (effective 07/01/22)
