2021 Clergy Standing Form
The 2009 General Assembly of the Christian Church (DOC) approved the document, Theological Foundation and Policies and Criteria for the Ordering of Ministry in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). "This document requires Regions to oversee an annual process through which the standing of ministers may be reviewed and renewed.
This process requires that the ministers provide certain information to the Regional Committee on Ministry (RCOM). This form is intended to facilitate that process.
Note: Face-to-face meetings with the Regional Committee on Ministry are not normally needed, although either party may ask for such a meeting if it is desired.
Standing Forms for 2021 must be completed by January 22, 2021.
