Mountain Sky Area Clergy Absences

It is the duty and requirement of our shared covenant to attend all sessions of annual conference each year, including Sunday morning. If you are unable to attend any part of annual conference, please notify your district superintendent and the Conference Secretary, Rev. Elizabeth McVicker (, via email with the following information:  your name, the days you will be absent and the compelling reason for your absence. No other form is required. The Conference Secretary will report those who have indicated their absence to the Cabinet for follow-­up.

2016 Book of Discipline ¶ 602.8 "It is the duty of every member and all probationers and local pastors of the Annual Conference to attend its sessions and furnish such reports in such form as the Discipline may require. Any such person unable to attend shall report by letter to the conference secretary, setting forth the reason for the absence. Should any ordained minister in active service be absent from the session of the Annual Conference without a satisfactory reason for the absence, the matter shall be referred by the conference secretary to the Board of Ordained Ministry." 

1992 Book of Discipline ¶ 309.1 "...The diaconal minister shall attend the sessions of the Annual Conference. Any diaconal minister unable to attend shall report by letter to the bishop setting forth the reason for the absence."
