Checklists and Forms

The checklists and forms on this page are for the 2016-2017 Conference year and will not be used in 2017-2018 when most forms will be created in UMCARES. These checklists and forms will remain during the transition from Pathways to UMCARES to provide initial guidance on general credentialing requirements.  More information about credentialing requirements for all requests that are made to a District Committee on Ordained Ministry may be found in the draft version of the District Committee on Ordained Ministry Handbook.

Please note: The Board of Ordained Ministry registrar's office is in Lincoln, Nebraska. Contact the Rev. Karen Jeffcoat via email at registrar@greatplainsumc.org.
