Instructions for Applications

Clergy interested in being considered for a particular position should send the following documents to the Rev. Canon Ellen Ekevag, Canon for Congregational Development and Transitions for the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan by email: or mail to 4800 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48201.

  1. letter addressed to the Search Committee in which the candidate

(a) offers a self-introduction, and (b) describes why they feel drawn into discernment around this particular position.  The specific form, length, and content of the letter is at the candidate’s discretion;

  1. current resume; and
  2. .pdf of the candidate’s current Office of Transition Ministries Portfolio, including answers to all of the narrative questions.

It is very helpful (though not required) if all three documents can be sent as attachments to a single email.  The Canon does an initial screening of all candidates prior to forwarding applications to the Search Committee.

The Search Committee then reviews the application and decides whether to invite the candidate to continue in the process. Further steps in the process include a video interview and site visits by the candidate and by members of the Committee. In certain instances Committees may add other steps, such as asking for answers to written questions. A background check takes place later in the process.

Further details about how the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan  approaches transitions may be found in the Guide below. This is the same information as given to congregational Search Committees.
