Dear CCIW Clergy Colleagues:
Our Regional Committee on Ministry thanks you for your ministry and service to God, Church and community. We are grateful that you are part of the ministry of the Christian Church in Illinois and Wisconsin.
Many of you have already noticed and acted on our new procedure for filing your standing form. We have a website version that, once completed, will only require you to update changes in years to come. The process has been available since August and will end November 30.
To receive Standing in 2016 the Regional Committee on Ministry you must complete the process by November 30, 2015.
Retired clergy who still want to be active doing pulpit supply, interims, weddings, funerals must also complete this process by November 30.
If you are Retired and no longer serving in ministry, your standing will remain as recognition of your faithful service. No form is necessary.
Please note that the Regional Commission on Ministry will remove standing if you fail to complete this process.
We will begin sending out standing cards as of Dec. 1.
In Christ’s service with you,
Rev. Dr. Teresa Dulyea-Parker, Regional Minister & President
