Board of Ordained Ministry

Provisional Membership


It is the responsibility of the Board of Ordained Ministry to nurture those persons who are provisional members of the North Texas Annual Conference. Once elected as a provisional member, persons may continue as such for a maximum of eight years. Persons seeking ordination in the North Texas conference are required to participate in the two year Provisional Membership Residency Program during this time. Successful completion of this program is a requirement for ordination as a deacon or elder in full connection in the North Texas Conference.
