The PNW Board of Ordained Ministry takes seriously its role to provide licensed and ordained ministers for the mission of the church in the Pacific Northwest Annual Conference. With a vision to develop disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, we seek candidates who are called to set apart ministry with the goal of establishing and renewing United Methodist Churches. We oversee the theological education of candidates and provide mentoring opportunities. In addition, we manage changes in conference relationships, assist in the retooling and continuing education of our clergy and specialized ministers and work with the various entities in the Annual Conference to further our shared mission.
Our hope is that you can find the current and accurate information you need whether you are an elder, deacon, provisional member, local pastor, candidate in ministry or lay person. Please feel free to contact us if you are unable to find what you need.
Rev. Geoff Helton
Board of Ordained Ministry Chair
