• Teaching Plan for 2021-2022 Application (PDF) – Provisional Members may complete their Teaching Plan the year prior to the year in which they will write all their papers and apply for Full Membership.

Informal Advisory Volunteer (Word)
A number of our past and present Provisional Members have asked about informal advisors who would be willing to be contacted about reading papers, participating in mock interviews and generally being helpful about sharing their experiences in applying for Full Membership and Ordination. This list of ordained clergy have volunteered to serve in this capacity.

For questions or concerns, contact the Rev. David Vaughan, Provisional Team Chair, or the Rev. Jessie Colwell, BOM Registrar.
