The polity of Conservative Mennonite Conference requires advance authorization of ordinations and licensures. Requests for authorization for ordination and licensures are processed by the Executive Board and reported to the CMC business meeting. The CMC Ministerial Committee also processes requests for authorization, with recommendation to the Executive Board after evaluation of the candidate’s Ministerial Questionnaire.
Requests for authorization should be submitted to the CMC office at least six weeks in advance of the Executive Board meeting or the CMC business meeting in which action is desired. The candidate’s Ministerial Questionnaire should accompany this request form.
