Commissioning and Ordination
2020 COMMISSIONING INFORMATION MEETINGS
The Office of Ministerial Services is excited to host commissioning informational sessions for those considering applying for commissioning of 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. Following the informational session, there will be a time for questions and review of the information.
All persons who anticipate applying for commissioning on the deacon, elder, or associate member track must attend one of these informational sessions.
Please check back for a link to register for one of the sessions that will be held in August 2020.
