Resolution 68

The Ministry of the Church - The Ministry of Women

The ordination of a deaconess should everywhere include prayer by the bishop and the laying-on of hands, the delivery of the New Testament to the candidate, and a formula giving authority to execute the office of a deaconess in the Church of God. Such ordination need not be at the Ember seasons, and should not be combined with an ordination or priests or deacons, but should always be held in the face of the Church.
