Search and Call

Search & Call in the Christian Church in Ohio

  •  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:

You may also call Disciples Home Mission at 888-346-2631.

Search & Call Meet & Greet with the Ohio Regional Minister, Rev. Allen V. Harris

Wednesday, September 21, 7:00 p.m.

Search And Call Meet And Greet
Are you a clergy person who is in discernment about where God is calling you to next and the Ohio Region has been on your heart and mind?  Have you been in the search and call process for a while and wonder what you might do to improve, revive, or renew your search?  Do you want to learn the perspective of a Regional Minister (specifically Rev. Allen Harris's perspective) on our procedures an practices, what we look for in a "good match,” and how best to work with a Regional Minister while in Search & Call?

If so, you are invited to join ina virtual Search & Call Meet & Greet with Rev. Allen V. Harris on Wednesday, September 21 from 7-8:30 p.m.

All clergy who are in Search & Call who are either living in the Ohio Region or are looking to serve a congregation in the Ohio Region are warmly welcome to attend.  This is for ordained and commissioned clergy, those looking for full time or part time positions as well as settled and interim positions.  Please note that while we will ask participants to keep confidentiality, we cannot be responsible if this not maintained.  So participants will need to be somewhat public about being in Search & Call.  The gathering will *not* be recorded for this very reason.

Rev. Harris will also share a bit about the Ohio congregations who are currently seeking pastoral leadership.

To RSVP please register in advance for this meeting:


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

And be sure to have your favorite beverage and snacks ready!
