Search and Call Documents
Seeking a call in the United Church of Christ?
The UCC Profiles office keeps a record of current Ministerial Profiles and can circulate them to Conferences on request.
Current Ministerial profiles will show proper authorization by an Association of the United Church of Christ (or by a Conference acting as an Association), and will contain a comprehensive criminal background check good for 18 months from date issued.
How to Start or or Re-open a Ministerial Profile:
To generate a current Ministerial Profile, please allow yourself a couple of months' time. Start with a Criminal Background Check and a signed Statement of Consent. Proceed to enter your information in an online Profile, including 8 electronic references.
When at least seven references are received, when you have closed the Profile online, and the UCC Profiles office has received your completed CBC/SOC, a draft Profile is processed for your review. Upon approval by yourself and vetting by your Conference representative, a final Ministerial Profile can be circulated.
Create or edit a new Ministerial Profile here. To re-open a Ministerial Profile you have had in the past, please send an email to email@example.com.
Seeking a Minister for Your Setting of the United Church of Christ?
The Profiles process provides support for UCC congregations conducting a search for pastoral leadership nationwide among UCC-authorized clergy.
To participate, congregations prepare a Local Church Profile while clergy prepare a Ministerial Profile. It is expected that both clergy and local churches will work closely with UCC Conferences and Associations while engaged in Search and Call.
