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 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. Congregational calls are listed immediately, but we do have one non-congregational call currently open, the Lutheran Campus Ministry at WVU.

*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.
