Search and Call
- If you are an ordained minister with standing in a region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), you will have access to the Search and Call process of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) administered through the Regional Offices and the Disciples Home Mission Office of Search and Call.
- If you are a licensed pastor or a pastor of another denomination interested in serving as pastor of a congregation in the Christian Church in Ohio (Disciples of Christ) congregation, contact a member of the Christian Church in Ohio regional staff.
In either case, the first step is to consult with a member of the Christian Church in Ohio regional staff about the search process.
The second step is to familiarize yourself with the Guidelines for Search and Call recommended to congregations by the Christian Church in Ohio. Those guidelines are found here.
The third step is to complete your Ministerial Profile. To do this, you must get the most current version of the computer program. Go to https://dhm.suran.com/minister/login to download the program. Complete it on your computer.
If you plan to circulate your profile only in Ohio, discuss this with a regional staff person BEFORE submitting your profile electronically to the Office of Search and Call. More information and instructions are available from the Disciples Home Mission Office of Search and Call.. Go to their website at:
