Extended Commission Renewal
In some cases, individuals who have been commissioned for more than 3 years will be granted an extended commission. This means that the individual does not need to physically meet each year with the Ministry Committee or complete the evaluation forms. These individuals can submit annual written reports discussing significant events in their ministry and plans moving into the next year. These reports are read and accepted or denied by the Ministry Committee. Additionally, ministers must submit the following:
- Complete Annual Ministerial Standing Form This form is completed on a yearly basis and serves as a biographical data update for all ordained and commissioned clergy. You do not need to complete this form at the time of your interview. It will be mailed to you at the appropriate time and is here as a reference.
- Every five years you must renew your Extended Commission with a visit to the Committee on Ministry.
