Congregations, Rostered Ministers, and Supply Persons Regarding Pulpit Supply
This is a list of retired and active pastors 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.
