Invocational Speaking

Invocational Speaking Opportunity

The Nye County Board of County Commissioners makes it a policy to invite members of the clergy/religious leaders in Nye County to voluntarily offer a prayer before the beginning of its meetings, for the benefit and blessing of the Board. As the leader of one of the religious congregations with an established presence in the local community of Nye County, you are eligible to offer this service at an upcoming meeting of the Board.

If you are willing to assist the Board in this regard, please submit your request at your earliest convenience. Respondents are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Board meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month except in January of odd-numbered years wherein it meets on the first Monday. Meetings begin at 10 a.m. at the Board of County Commissioners Chambers located in Pahrump, Tonopah or at another selected location. When a meeting is scheduled for a specific location, teleconferencing is available at the other locations of 101 Radar Road, Tonopah, Nevada, 2100 E Walt Williams Drive, Pahrump, Nevada, or 426 C. Avenue South, Beatty, Nevada. If you have a preference among the meeting dates, please state your preference request in your written reply.

This opportunity is voluntary, and you are free to offer the invocation according to the dictates of your own conscience.To maintain a spirit of respect and ecumenism, the Board requests only that the prayer opportunity not be exploited as an effort to convert others to the particular faith of the invocational speaker, nor to disparage any faith or belief different than that of the invocational speaker.
