Guide for Congregations, Rostered Ministers, and Supply Persons Regarding Supply Needs

This guide has been prepared in an effort to assist congregations/pastor or supply person if needed. It is meant to include seminarians, synod staff, retired and active pastors. Lay persons may be assigned if no one is available from this category in consultation with the contact person who has requested a supply pastor.

  1. The need for supply pastors that cannot be met locally are directed to the Supply Coordinator at the synod office (717-652-1852 ext. 115) or to the Supply Coordinator at the seminary at Gettysburg (717-338-0593).
  2. The person assigned should receive a bulletin prior to the service if one is available so that he/she can be familiar with the order of service.
  3. Hospitality arrangements should be made in advance for overnight accommodations should the person assigned find it necessary.
  4. The contact person is responsible for contacting the person assigned as far ahead as possible so that he/she knows where the church is located and any other needs the congregation may have.
  5. The person assigned also should contact the pastor or contact person to verify the date(s) he/she is expected to conduct the service.
  6. The honorarium should be presented to the guest immediately following the service.
  7. Please note: Persons who serve as supply pastor or interim pastor in a congregation are NOT ELIBIGLE to be considered for call to that congregation.
  8. If the congregation opts to make a change to the schedule after a pastor or lay person has been assigned, it is the responsibility of the congregation to contact the pastor/lay person to let him/her know of the change and the reason for the change.

•54.5 cents per mile for business miles driven, up from 53.5 cents for 2017
The standard mileage rate for business is based on an annual study of the fixed and variable costs of operating an automobile.
