Board of Ordained Ministry

Continuation of Provisional Membership

To be continued as a provisional member, candidates shall make regular progress in their effective ministry.

All provisional members are required to meet with the Committee on Preparation and Qualifications annually in a brief personal consultation. The Committee will utilize the candidate’s paperwork submitted to P&Q from the Residency Committee. If the provisional member is not in Residency, they should submit a one-page summary of their current place in ministry and their plans for ordination to the Chair of P&Q. Candidates should be prepared to discuss the material submitted. Each provisional member will meet with a sub-committee of P&Q for Continuing Consultations.

The date for the provisional member consultation will be Thursday, April 3, 2014, at First UMC, Denton. Provisional and Associate Members will be notified by the Chairperson of P&Q concerning the place and scheduled times for the consultation.

Provisional Members who do not attend the consultation or contact the Registrar of the Chairperson of P & Q will not be recommended for continuance as a provisional member in the North Texas Conference.
