If a brother has been baptized at least one year and to a reasonable degree meets the Scriptural qualifications
for ministerial servants outlined at1 Timothy 3:8-13, he can be recommended for appointment.
Interesting comment in the latest Watchtower. Looks to me like they are now willing to lower their standards for those who qualify to be ministerial servants
First they are saying that the brother only needs to be baptised a year, and secondly only needs to a reasonable degree to meet the qualifications outlined in 1 Timothy 3
It has been said before on jw discussion sites that they are short of men who are willing to be mini servants or elders. Maybe that is true.
