Clergy who have moved or been called to the Northern California Nevada Conference and who need to complete a Transfer of Ministerial Standing (TOS) can do so through several steps.

Please utilize this form to complete your Transfer of Standing request. If you have all of the materials ready to enter or upload, it should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. Please have ready:

  • Contact details for your local church pastor or membership secretary (if you are the pastor)
  • A Conference staff person or the chair of the Committee on Ministry of your current Association/Conference
  • PDF documentation of
    • Mandated reporter and boundary training in the past three years
    • Call agreement or employment agreement (if applicable).

The PDF documents will be uploaded to the form. Your pastor or membership secretary, as well as current Conference/Association, will be automatically requested to validate your local church membership and good ministerial standing. Once those validations are complete, you will be scheduled for your Transfer of Ministerial Standing appointment.

Once COM-B approves your TOS, your Standing is transferred. If you have received a call to a ministry setting in this Conference, your TOS will be communicated to your Association and you may then proceed with them scheduling your Installation.
