Congregations

Because so many congregations are “in transition” for an extended period of time, the website lists only those congregations that are actively in transition. For more information about calls listed as “awaiting candidate” or “in study process,” please contact Bishop Zeiser. The congregation’s mission district is listed behind each congregation name and location.
