THE PROCESS AT THE YEARLY MEETING LEVEL
If it is discerned that Recording should be done at the Yearly Meeting level, all information and the discernment process is forwarded to the SCYMF Clerk for the Committee for Nurture of Ministry Clerk.NurtureOfMinistry@scymf.org. The local group will name someone to accompany the candidate throughout the process at the Yearly Meeting level.
The committee meets with the candidate, discerning any additional work to be completed. A background check is ordered.
There is a 60-day feedback period for people to give input about the candidate to the committee
If there is clearness and joy, the committee brings a recommendation to the SCYMF Meeting for Business. If approved, there is a celebration of Recording.
