Conference Board of Ordained Ministry and Certified Lay Ministers (80221-MH-¶634.2)

Amend ¶ 634.2 by inserting the following at u) and re-lettering:  
u) To report annually to the annual conference for publication in the conference journal a roster of all persons certified as Lay Ministers.

Rationale

While the 2004 Book of Discipline created Certified Lay Minister, it did not adequately explain how a Certified Lay Minister relates to the Annual Conference through the District Committee on Ministry and the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry. This proposed legislation addresses the situation and alleviates confusion.
