Becoming Ministers, Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards, also known asTrusted Servants

TRUSTED SERVANTS DESCRIBED.

"1. Recognition of Trusted Servants. In addition to its organizational Trusted Servants, be they designated officers or otherwise, congregations may have specialized Trusted Servants that could include those who devote more or their own time to, and help coordinate and facilitate the activities of other members of the congregations, in spiritual healing, ministry and earth stewardship."

"2. Ideals of Caring, Sharing and Service. All Trusted Servants shall render the utmost respect for the integrity of all individuals, whether or not human, and support the holistic integration of all human communities within the natural ecological ecosystems of the planet, solar system, galaxy and universe. They, along with all members of the congregation, are encouraged to dispel, through both reasoned and intuitive knowledge, the ignorance that breeds fear, needless cravings, anger, rage, hatred, starvation, suffering, illness, abuse, cruelty, neglect, guilt, disease and wasting of life. They are all encouraged to reach for an understanding of the individual integrity protected and preserved but still within the ecological web of Gaiactic, Celestial, Galactic and Universal relationships.

ORDAINED MINISTERS

"1. Duties. The Assembly may ordain ministers who shall be affiliated with a member congregation and may be employed by, with or through congregations to assist, coordinate and facilitate ritual, ceremonial and religious activities at the pleasure of any participating congregation or congregations including private or personal activities for their members."

PRACTITIONERS OF SPIRITUAL HEALING

"1. Duties. The Assembly may certify Practitioners of Spiritual Healing who shall be affiliated with a member congregation and may be employed by, with or through congregations to assist, coordinate and facilitate any healing activities at the pleasure of any participating congregation or congregations or their members."

DIPLOMATS OF EARTH STEWARDSHIP

"1. Duties. The Assembly may appoint Diplomats of Earth Stewardship who shall be affiliated with a member congregation and may be employed by, with or through congregations to assist, coordinate and facilitate any Earth Stewardship activities at the pleasure of any participating congregation or congregations or their members."

HOW TRUSTED SERVANTS ARE ORDAINED, CERTIFIED OR APPOINTED:

Ordination / Certification / Appointment. "Ministers wishing to be ordained (or Spiritual Healers who wish to be certified or Diplomats of Earth Stewardship who wish to be appointed) by the assembly shall need the recommendation of a member congregation, maintain good moral character, shall agree to maintain membership in the Convocation of Ministers and abide by the Standards of Honest and Fair Practices of the Assembly for all specialized Trusted Servants and seek to practice the ideals of caring, sharing and service."

To become ordained as a Minister, or appointed as a Diplomat of Earth Stewardship or a Certified Spiritual Healer, besides being nominated by a member congregation, the candidate must sign a pledge of Honest and Fair practices. Each application has this pledge upon it and no certificate will issue until it is signed. The pledge generally requires the person to act in an honest, informed, responsible and professional manner, refraining from bringing harm to anyone through his or her actions or omissions and bringing ill repute to the SHES assembly or to the profession he or she has chosen as a SHES calling. It requires the person to cooperate with the Shes in any investigation of complaints of acts or omissions that violate the pledge and makes specific reference to refraining from the illegal sale or use of drugs or intemperate use of alcoholic or controlled substances that would affect the practice of his or her calling. A copy of the application to be a trusted servant is available from the International Assembly for more specific information.
