Status of Appointed Certified Candidates (80302-MH-¶314)

Amend ¶314 as follows:
  
314. Appointment of Certified Candidates—A certified candidate is eligible for appointment as a local pastor upon completion of License for Pastoral Ministry (¶ 315). Those appointed as local pastors are clergy members of the annual conference (¶602.1) and are no longer listed as certified candidates. They do not continue with candidacy mentors but are assigned a clergy mentor (¶ 349.4)

Rationale

To give clarity about eligibility to be licensed as a local pastor and appointment status of certified candidates.
