  • The full Leader Application Process must be renewed every two years.
  • The Applicant is to read the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference Procedures and Safety Standards for Children and Youth Programs Phase II, go over with their pastor (clergy or lay missioner) and if there is no pastor their District Superintendent, sign the statement page and return the statement page with their application to the conference office.

 To maintain confidentiality of your information and assure prompt and efficient processing, it is essential that all forms be returned directly to the conference office.

The Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference values the children and youth who attend all programs, activities and events of the conference on all levels.  It is our intent to protect and nurture these young persons.  Therefore, we ask that everyone who provides direct supervision and/or leadership with children and/or youth to fully complete this form and return it to the conference office.
