The remaining information collected is only for synod staff purposes and will be kept confidential.

The congregation should provide travel reimbursement in the amount of $0.65.5 (65.5 cents) per mile or current IRS mileage reimbursement rates found here.
Some of the persons eligible and recommended for pulpit supply in the Sierra Pacific Synod are persons who are Approved for Ordination and awaiting first call. These persons may be granted special dispensation by the Bishop of the Synod to preside at the table during their pulpit supply service.
To obtain special dispensation the congregation requesting pulpit supply service should email email@example.com with “SPECIAL DISPENSATION” in the subject line and in the body of the email give the name of the guest preacher and date of service. The requesting congregation should copy the email to the guest preacher in question. The Office of the Bishop will then respond to both parties.
To those candidates for ministry performing the service to the congregation, we encourage you to keep a copy of this dispensation for your own records and to keep the Bishop and Candidacy committee in your home synod informed.
