2017 Ministerial Standing Form
Dear Colleague in Ministry,
The Commission on Ministry is excited to introduce the new 2017 Standing form. The quality of the Standing Form has been improved to include; an individual "Login" and Password" (created by you), an easier format to follow, and the ability for you to manage personal updates at anytime (such as address changes, cell phone, and email). The best feature is that once you have completed the 2017 "Request for Standing" form, your personal data will saved and available for submitting the "Request for Standing" form for following years to come.
LOGIN & PASSWORD INSTRUCTIONS
After clicking on the "Request for Standing" link you will notice the * symbols by the fields that indicate information is required. This information must be filled out before you can move to the next page. Note: Under the "e-mail address" there is a "Password" required field. The "Password" field has NO requirements this means you may create one that is easiest for you to remember. Once you have completed the standing form and hit "Submit" button and an e-mail will be sent within 24 hours indicating your standing form has been received.
In keeping with the Theological Foundations and Policies and Criteria for the Ordering of Ministry, the Commission on Ministry is responsible on an annual basis for reviewing and certifying the Standing of all ordained ministers, commissioned ministers, and Ordained Ministerial Partners serving in The Christian Church in Ohio. To better fulfill this role, the Commission on Ministry in Ohio, each year, ask that you to complete a "Request for Standing" form.
By completing and returning the "Request for Standing" form, you will enable the Commission on Ministry to become acquainted with you and to affirm your ministry as one for whose Standing they are responsible. Every form will be carefully read and prayerfully considered by the members of the Commission on Ministry. The information you provided last year was taken very seriously and handled confidentially. By this process, your standing was certified and your name is listed in the Ministers Directory of the 2017 Year Book and Directory of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
