For many years, Dordt has served as a resource for churches. Our capable staff and faculty include ordained ministers and licensed preachers who are willing to fill in when your congregation has a need for pulpit supply. It is recommended that each church discuss an appropriate honorarium and mileage with the Dordt faculty or staff member providing pulpit supply.

Below you'll find a list of eligible staff who would be happy to serve in a pulpit supply position. Feel free to contact the church relations office at (712) 722-6020 for more information or assistance in scheduling one of our staff.

If you prefer to contact them individually, their phone numbers and email addresses are listed below.
