New to the Conferences?

Welcome to the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Conferences of the United Church of Christ (UCC). We are a collection of about 300 churches working in covenant together.

Requirements for Ministers

Information Review

Information Reviews are requested each year for those with UCC ministerial standing as part of requirement for good standing. If serving UCC churches in Iowa, Nebraska or South Dakota, but have other denomination connections or in the process of becoming a UCC minister, we still appreciate the time to complete this form. At the end, the submit button forwards this information review to the conference office, the correct COM chair, and to the preferred email address used on this form.

Collection of the 2022 forms has finished and the 2023 form is not yet available.

Resources and Standing Requirements for Authorized Ministers

The Conferences offer a host of resources for United Church of Christ (UCC) ministers on our Resources for Ministers page including standing requirements and how to keep them up, worship resources of all kinds, and information for new ministers.
