Boards of Ordained Ministry (BOMs) are tasked with interviewing candidates for ordination and commissioning, and for setting policy and procedures that follow the United Methodist Discipline.

The districts are served by respective District Committees on Ordained Ministry(DCOM), which help candidates progress from identifying their call (along with their pastor and DS) until they reach the point of being considered for ordination/commissioning.  Since we now have 2 DS's and DCOM's, the Clovis District churches in Portales and north will be served by the ABQ DS & DCOM.  Churches south of Portales will be served by the El Paso DS & DCOM.
