Ministry Committee

The role of the Ministry Committee is to “help foster the spiritual life and good order of the Yearly Meeting, by providing assistance and counsel to the Yearly Meeting clerks and endeavoring to make the annual session a fulfilling experience for all participants.” (PacYM Faith & Practice, 2001)

At the 2020 Annual Session unity was found to drop the word “Oversight” from the traditional name which was “Ministry and Oversight” or “M&O”.  There was not unity as to what word, if any, to replace “Oversight” with, so the name will remain “Ministry Committee” until such time as the issue may be revisited.
