How to ordain priests and teachers
Boring Stuff 3:1-4

1 The manner which the disciples, who were called the elders of the church, ordained priests and teachers --

Here's how the disciples (who were called elders) ordained priests and teachers.

2 After they had prayed unto the Father in the name of Christ, they laid their hands upon them, and said:

They prayed and laid their hands on them.

3 In the name of Jesus Christ I ordain you to be a priest, (or, if he be a teacher) I ordain you to be a teacher, to preach repentance and remission of sins through Jesus Christ, by the endurance of faith on his name to the end. Amen.

They they said,

In the name of Jesus, I ordain you to be a priest (or a teacher).

4 And after this manner did they ordain priests and teachers, according to the gifts and callings of God unto men; and they ordained them by the power of the Holy Ghost, which was in them.

That's how they did it. [1]
