Licensed Friends Ministers

Upon receiving a request from a local church that is part of Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends (SCYMF), the Committee for the Nurture of Ministry will issue a Minister’s License. The church should submit basic contact information, the nature of ministry, and their affirmation of the minister/ministry as part of the request. Licensed ministers must be a member of SCYMF and comply with the Yearly Meeting’s policies for protection of children and avoidance of boundary violations.

In general, a Minister’s License is granted for short term needs or to someone who requires a license before completing the Recording process. All licenses will expire on December 31. Licenses (including those granted mid-year) will require a repeat request from the local church if the license is to be extended for an additional year.

All requests can be sent to the Clerk of the Committee on Nurture of Ministry at
