Recording of Ministers - Bylaws 29

RECORDING OF MINISTERS

Recorded Ministers.

SCYMF officially recognizes its ministers as those who have been recorded, with the approval of the business meeting, or who have undergone the recording process consistent with its Faith and Practice.  

Licensed Ministers.

The Yearly Meeting may issue an annual certificate of license to an unrecorded minister. This certificate authorizes temporary pastoral ministry.  

Transfer of recording.

Friends who want their recording/licensing transferred can bring it to their local meeting elders, or a group they trust if they are not part of a local meeting, and that group will bring it to Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends (SCYMF) as a recording or licensing transfer. SCYMF will receive the recording, while continuing to work on developing our recording process and philosophy.

Wedding ceremonies.

Recorded and licensed ministers are authorized to perform wedding ceremonies.
