Pulpit Supply Request

The Southern Ohio Synod employs a part-time Pulpit Supply Coordinator who works with rostered ministers in our synod to fill vacancies for worship services at our congregations who do not currently have a pastor.

Please contact Sister Sally Burk at 614.337.1945 or sistersallyburk@gmail.com at least one month prior to the date your congregation needs a supply pastor. Requests made later than one month out may not be filled.


Substitute pastor available to allow your pastor to take a Sunday off!

The Rev. Dr. Brenda Buckwell has graciously offered to serve as a supply preacher for any pastors who need a Sunday off.  Dr. Buckwell is an ordained Methodist minister, who serves regularly on the Southern Ohio Synod pulpit supply list.  She is well versed in Lutheran liturgy, and in using Zoom and other technologies for communication. (Note: Synod Pulpit Supply rates apply -- $175 for a recorded service or 1 live service.)
