Mentors (80192-SU-¶419.e)

Amend ¶ 419 (e) as follows:
¶ 419. The district superintendent shall oversee the total ministry of the clergy  . . . (e) by nominating clergy in full connection, associate members, or full-time local pastors who have completed the Course of Study to serve in the ministry of mentoring candidates, commissioned ministers, local pastors and other probationary members;  . . .

Rationale

This petition is to clean up language in the District Superintendent’s responsibilities to match the 2004 Book of Discipline that allows Associate Members and Local Pastors who have completed the Course of Study to serve as mentors (see ¶349.1b).
