Pulpit Supply List

The pulpit supply list below provides names and contact information for those who are available as supply preachers in the Oregon Synod.

Payment to Supply Pastors

The congregation should establish reasonable reimbursement rates for the conducting of worship services AND travel expenses for supply pastors. The recommended rate of payment to supply pastors is one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00) for one worship service, and thirty dollars ($30.00) for each additional service on the same day and at the same location. Travel related expenses (miles, housing, and meals as appropriate) should also be reimbursed. The payment of these expenses is the sole responsibility of the congregation and should be paid on the day the supply pastor fills the pulpit.

The following pastors have given us permission to post their names and contact information on this website.
