LICENSING
(see MOM section 7, especially step 18, p. 11 and 23)

The Registrar should keep track of license expirations coming up, and notify the Church & Ministry committee. The committee may ask you to do the following:

Two to three months before a minister's license expires:
Contact both the licensee and the church, reminding them that the church must send a request for the license to be renewed. The Church & Ministry team will have set a meeting time to talk with the licensee, so include that information.

Contact the licensee's mentor, inviting him/her to the meeting.

After the C & M team approves renewal of the license:
Communicate to the church moderator indicating the approval.

Fill out a new Certificate of Licensure and a new wallet ID, with the new dates of licensing. Keep a copy of both, and give a copy to the Association office.

Send a letter to the minister indicating the license was renewed, with a copy also to the church. Give or send him/her the new certificate and wallet ID.
