Members-at-large Annual Review
Seattle Presbytery Annual Review of members-at-large
Seattle Presbytery’s Commission on Ministry has revised its process for conducting annual reports for ministers engaged in ministry outside the congregation and members-at-large. Please complete the online form and email any additional attachments to: email@example.com by February 28, 2018.
“A member-at-large is a teaching elder who has previously been engaged in a validated ministry, and who now,  without intentional abandonment of the exercise of ministry, is no longer engaged in a ministry that complies with all the criteria in G-2.0503a. A teaching elder may be designated a member-at-large because he or she is limited in his or her ability to engage in a ministry fulfilling all of the criteria for a validated ministry due to family responsibilities or other individual circumstances recognized by the presbytery. A member-at-large shall comply with as many of the criteria in G-2.0503a as possible and shall actively participate in the life of a congregation. The status of member-at-large shall be reviewed annually.”
If you no longer reside in the geographic bounds of the presbytery, COM encourages you to seek membership in the presbytery where you live.
If you would like COM to consider a request for a validated ministry, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
