Associations are our denomination’s ordaining body
Associations include a Committee on Ministry (COM). The COMs are the ordaining bodies of the United Church of Christ, responsible for supporting, encouraging, and evaluating our authorized ministers. To learn more about COMs, see our Leadership Formation and Discernment page and visit our National Setting to see the Manual on Ministry, which outlines the work of COMs and the process for authorization for ministry within the UCC.
