CIT (Congregations in Transition)

Lutheran CORE has trained (mostly) retired Lutheran pastors to become transition coaches. They are able to help churches whose pastors have retired or resigned, or soon will be retiring or resigning maintain stability and momentum in regards to the congregation’s vital ministries during the transition process. For more information check out our Transitions page or contact

Clergy Connect Disclaimer

Lutheran CORE makes no representation concerning the accuracy of any information on this list, nor of the qualifications of applicants responding to a listing here. This is a free bulletin board service. Both congregations and applicants are responsible for doing their own due diligence research. We urge congregations to secure criminal background checks on all candidates for ministry positions and to confirm information including references on any application.

  • Are you a pastor or church professional looking for a confessing church?
  • Are you a member of a congregation looking for a confessing pastor or church professional?

A free bulletin board service, Clergy Connect brings together confessing congregations with  discipleship workers capable of discerning Law and Gospel who are seeking a salaried call. If you are a discipleship worker trying to discern whether God might be calling you to one of these positions, please drop the congregation a line to begin a mutual process of discerning your call to the position. If you are open to His work, the Holy Spirit is just as alive and active through this process as through any other.

Congregational search committees are asked to submit church name, location, description of the position and the congregation, and contact information. Vacancies can be emailed to and should be updated every six months. Vacancies 18 months and older will be deleted.

Please notify us when a position is filled.
