District Committee on Ministry (DCOM) Instructions

UMC: From Mississippi Last updated on 11/19/2021
I have been cleaning up the (1) Board of Ordained Ministry (BOOM), (2) Board of Ordained Ministry (BOOM) – Exec. Committee and (3) Ordained Ministry assignments in Brick River. There has been quite a bit of confusion around which title to use for the district. So a month or so ago on our District Secretaries call, we discussed adding the assignment position “District Committee on Ordained Ministry (DCOM)” in Brick River, to be used by the district offices to add the folks on their District Committees on Ordained Ministries.
 
I’ve added the new POSITION of “District Committee on Ordained Ministry (DCOM)” to the drop-down selection when adding a new assignment. I also took the liberty of changing a number of the Board of Ordained Ministry (BOOM) position assignments to District Committee on Ordained Ministry (DCOM).
 
I am also attaching a spreadsheet of the folks who have a current assignment of one of the following three positions:
  1. Ordained Ministry
  2. Board of Ordained Ministry (BOOM) – Exec. Committee
  3. District Committee on Ordained Ministry (DCOM)
 Please review the folks in your district and where needed:
  1. Change the Ordained Ministry and Board of Ordained Ministry (BOOM) – Exec. Committee positions to District Committee on Ordained Ministry (DCOM)
  2. Add start dates and end dates as needed
  3. Add the “Role” (i.e., Chair, Vice-Chair, etc.) as needed
  4. If an assignment needs to be deleted (and you are unable to delete it) let me know and I will delete the assignment for you.
  5. If folks are missing, add them
From this day forward, when adding your District Committees on Ordain Ministry please use the “District Committee on Ordained Ministry (DCOM)” position – do NOT use the Ordained Ministry, Board of Ordained Ministry (BOOM), or Board of Ordained Ministry (BOOM) – Exec. Committee selections.
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
