CSRC Licensed Lay Worship Leaders Re-Licensing Application

Licensed Lay Worship Leaders are re-licensed by the Regional Council.  This online re-licensing application is required for all LLWLs within the Canadian Shield Regional Council for the 2020-2021 pastoral year.  It is to be completed by April 1, 2020.  If you have any questions, please contact the Pastoral Relations Minister, Rev. Lillian Roberts  lroberts@united-church.ca or by phone 705-474-3350 Ext 3.

All LLWLs should have received an information email with more details about the re-licensing process, including the re-licensing group to which you have been assigned. 

CSRC LLWL Re-Licensing Process

The practice of the Canadian Shield Regional Council will be to re-license LLWLs every three years.  As the Regional Council transitions into this practice:

  • those being re-licensed for 3 years will be interviewed in 2020 in addition to this written application;
  • those being re-licensed for 1 year or 2 years will be asked for written application and will have interviews in 2021 and 2022 for licensing on the 3 year basis.

This is to facilitate a cycle where not all LLWLs will require interviews and re-licensing in the same year.  For more details please review the Re-licensing Process document that indicates the group to which you have been assigned and further instructions.

BEFORE YOU START YOUR APPLICATION, HERE ARE ITEMS YOU WILL BE ASKED FOR:

  • Dates of last Boundaries Training and Police Records Check;
  • Last Continuing Education;
  • 2 Letters of Support –  you will need to provide the names and email addresses of 2 people and they will be contacted by the CSRC after your application is in;
  • Contact Information for Representatives from your Community of Faith (to support your application) – one non-Ministry Personnel person (i.e. the Board Chair) and one Ministry Personnel (includes PC Supervisors) – you will need to provide their name, title, email, and phone number and they will be contacted by the CSRC after your application is in.
