Interested in Serving in WV-WMD?

Are you a member of the clergy of the ELCA (or full-communion partner) interested in learning more about WV-WMD? Drop us a line. You can email the +Riegel at Bishop@WV-WMD.org or call the office (304-363-4030). There is plenty to commend service and life in our mountains and in our valleys. Like Nebraska, it's not for everyone, but, for those who aren't afraid of an adventure, we have a great mix of challenge and gift. Get to know us a little better by clicking here.

*Until an MSP is completed, site type and call type reflect the last time a pastor or deacon served under call or appointment, unless the congregation has consulted with the bishop and reclassified itself. If the MSP is not active or in drafting, take the site type and status with a grain of salt. Feel free to contact the Bishop if you might be interested in the site were the configuration different than what is here posted. PT = part-time; FT = full-time.

In some cases, the congregation has no MSP at this time. Perhaps the congregation is newly vacant and has not yet begun the MSP drafting process.  In rare cases, the congregation may feel it is not ready to draft an MSP for a variety of reasons. If you would like to explore possibilities with these congregations, contact the Bishop.; there may be room for negotiation and consideration of alternative models.

Specialized Ministry

Calls to specializd ministry many different things. When the synod is aware of such an opening on our territory, we will post it here. N.B., if you are on an ELCA roster of ministers, you must be rostered in the synod on the territory of which the specialized ministry served is geographically situated, the exception being specialized ministries with multisynodical constituencies. Please contact +Riegel should you have questions about transfer process.

FCI Beckley

The Federal Corrections Installation Beckley has posted an position opening for chaplain. More information is posted on our Clergy page.
