2020 Clear Openings

The Bishop and his Cabinet will regularly publish Clear Openings here to allow NYAC clergy an opportunity to express their interest in a particular appointment. Please note that your expression of interest will not circumvent the usual discernment process and does not guarantee that the interested clergy will receive preferred consideration.

If you feel a sense of call to one of these appointments, then you may contact your District Superintendent using the links below with a short explanation of your reasons for submitting your name and why you feel the ministry setting is a good match for your gifts.
