The Office of Ministerial Services is hosting the final free information session 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 and who have not yet attended one of this year's sessions, MUST register to attend this final session.
The change of status packets are no longer available on this website.
Those wishing to pursue commissioning on the deacon or elder track, and those who wish to pursue recognition as associate members, must attend one of the information meetings provided in August/September. Packets containing assignments, explanatory information and forms will be distributed at those meetings. Registrations for these informational meetings will be available on this page after Annual Conference 2019.
Those wishing to pursue ordination as an elder or deacon will receive a packet at the annual Residents in Ministry Retreat at the end of August.
If you have a need to receive one of these packets at any other time, please contact the BOM Registrar (Shelley Nelson).
EXTRA FORMS ARE AVAILABLE ON UMCARES TRACK STEPS
