Bishop Bruce R. Ough and the Minnesota Annual Conference appointive cabinet seek to match clergy and congregations in order to fulfill our Gospel Imperatives: to grow in love of God and neighbor, reach new people, and heal a broken world. As part of our consultation process in appointment-making, we are inviting clergy to indicate their interest in those churches which we presently know to be open.
Presently there are clear opens in all the districts in the Dakotas and Minnesota Annual Conferences. The clear-open churches in both conferences are listed below. The appointive cabinets will use the information from your interest as part of our process of appointment-making.
If you are interested in being considered for one of these churches, we invite you to drop an email to the superintendent of the open church, with a copy to your own DS, stating why you are interested and what gifts you think you bring. If you want to know more about the church, please check out its website and ask the DS.
Thank you, and we ask that you keep us in your prayers as we begin the discernment in appointment-making very soon!
