  • Clergy Application Form

    Thank you for your interest in discerning a call to ministry in the Diocese of Southern Ohio. Be advised that the information provided here will be forwarded to the parish Search Committee for review. Your application here is a matter of absolute confidentiality; we ask this of our search committees and need to expect it of all clergy who make application for a position in the diocese as well. This includes careful use of social media and relationships with people of any degree of separation. News travels in this beloved Church of ours, and breaks in confidentiality can derail a search process in which many have put a great deal of time effort already. It also includes maintaining confidentiality of your interest or involvement in discernment with a congregation even if you have withdrawn your name from consideration or the Search Committee has decided to discontinue further discernment with you. If you have questions, please contact Sherri Martin, Assistant Transition Officer, at smartin@diosohio.org.
    • Be specific. If you are interested in multiple positions, please fill out a separate form for each.
