We consistently have clergy requesting to transfer to our conference, and we appreciate the expertise in ministry and experience that each brings to the conference through our United Methodist connectional structure. Inquiries regarding transfer of membership into the PNW Conference typically begin with a request to the Bishop’s Office, with the Board of Ordained Ministry and GBHEM playing a consultative role based on the type of transfer. We take our obligations to our clergy members seriously and we take our shared responsibility to our ministries even more seriously. Because of this, we have a high standard for clergy transferring membership into our conference.
Please review the Board of Ordained Ministries policy aligning with the 2016 Book of Discipline.
