Commissioning and Ordination


In September, 2017, the Office of Ministerial Services will be hosting a series of free information sessions for those who are considering applying for commissioning on the deacon, elder or associate member track. Participants will receive important information regarding the work that must be submitted to the Board of Ordained Ministry, as well as the deadlines for application. Time will be given to reviewing the information and answering any questions.

All persons who anticipate applying for commissioning on the deacon, elder or associate member track MUST register to attend one of these sessions.

Fall 2017 sessions and 2018 packets will be posted in July, 2017. Please stay tuned for updated information.
