Ministers who have served the Lord actively and honorably but cannot continue to do so due to health, age or another legitimate reason may request to be deemed Honorably Inactive by the General Board. This will be known as "Emeritus Status." Upon receiving Emeritus Status, these ministers will retain their ministerial credentials and full voting privileges, but may not hold official office in RPI. Emeritus ministers are required to maintain some form of financial support to the fellowship and abide within the criteria required by RPI to be considered in good standing. They shall be held in highest esteem for their service in the Kingdom of God and to our fellowship, in particular.
