Completing the Annual Declaration of Criminal Charges

From April 1 to June 30, ministry personnel (including candidates in Supervised Ministry Education appointments or other appointments) will be able to submit their annual declaration on criminal charges form on ChurchHub. This form needs to be filled out no later than June 30, 2020 to remain compliant, including being eligible for calls or appointments and for licenses for sacraments and marriages. To fill out the annual declaration, log in to ChurchHub and “My Ministry Page.” Look to the right for the “My Professional Requirements” box and then select the “Annual Declaration 2020” link.
If you completed your annual declaration anytime from Jan-Mar 2020, then you actually were completing your 2019 annual declaration. So you will need to log into ChurchHub and complete your annual declaration for 2020.  If you have any issues or questions please contact the Office of Vocation Minister Andrew Richardson at ARichardson@united-church.ca


Appointments – Region Council 15

For Appointments ending June 30, 2020 — please do not wait until the last minute to submit your request for Renewal to the Region for approval. General Council is now requiring new Appointments and Calls to be processed through ChurchHub, so it will be wise to set some time aside to become oriented to this new approach. Ministry Personnel seeking to be Appointed or to have their Appointment Renewed will need to verify their eligibility through their personal account on ChurchHub. For more information, please contact Regional Minister David Hewitt dhewitt@united-church.ca  For assistance with ChurchHub, please contact Deb Kigar at General Council dkigar@united-church.ca
