Sikh Dharma Ministers: Answering the Call

By SS Sarb Nam Kaur Khalsa

In 2015, the Secretary of Religion began developing a way for Ministers to connect and have a more direct voice and input regarding the Sikh Dharma Ministry. She established the Regional Minister Coordinators (RMCs)—a group of volunteer Ministers who support the Office of the Secretary of Religion in outreach to Ministers in our global community.

Through this grassroots infrastructure, the Secretary of Religion calls upon the RMCs to serve as Aquarian Age leaders. She says, “The RMCs are fostering a sense of community and communication among our global Sikh Dharma Ministers.” She noted that the Sikh Dharma Ministry, established by the Siri Singh Sahib, “serves on seven continents and includes individuals serving in a variety of ways—from multiple generations and cultures.”
