The Committee on Ordained Ministry (COM) assists the bishop in recruiting and selecting persons for the diaconate and priesthood. It guides and examines individuals through several stages in the ordination process, specifically the steps leading to postulancy, candidacy, and the transitional diaconate, if the person is a candidate for priesthood.
The Committee consists of nine members, five clergy and four laity, who are appointed by the bishop for staggered, three year terms. It is one of three canonically mandated committees of the Commission for Development and Nurture of Ministry.
For more information, contact the Rev. Terry Dirbas.
