What is ROSIM?

We are thrilled that you’re here to explore the dynamic community of the Register of OneSpirit Interfaith Ministers (ROSIM). ROSIM is a professional register that maintains the records of OneSpirit graduate ministers who yearn for accreditation and the unwavering support of the OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation, their alma mater.

Formerly known as the Registered Interfaith Ministers Association (RIMA), our primary objective is to create a robust, unified professional register under its members’ aspirations. Our mission unfolds in three core aims:

  • Enhancing the visibility of our ministers in public-facing roles, and bolstering public trust through the existence of a professional body to whom those ministers are accountable.
  • Offering a platform for all graduates to demonstrate their support and affiliation for OneSpirit, an organisation they venerate.
  • Understanding the role ROSIM membership plays in the context of legal weddings in Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland, where ministers require approval from authorising entities.

Membership in ROSIM is founded on the confirmation of ministers’ ongoing dedication to their personal vows, ordination vows, adherence to OneSpirit’s code of ethics, meeting of supervision and ongoing learning requirements, securing professional indemnity insurance, and agreement to abide by OneSpirit’s complaints policy. If you feel the need to file a complaint against any of our registered ministers, we encourage you to refer to our distinct ROSIM Complaints Policy.
