He was ordered deacon by Bishop Horatio Potter, 29 January, 1862, and ordained priest in Zion church, Morris, Otsego County, New York, which parish he had organized during his diaconate, by the same bishop, 19 July, 1863.

Tuttle was consecrated missionary bishop of Montana, Idaho, and Utah, in Trinity chapel, New York, 1 May, 1867. In 1868 he was elected to the bishopric of Missouri, but declined. In 1880 Montana was set off as a separate missionary jurisdiction, and Idaho and Utah remained under the charge of Bishop Tuttle.
