Are you serving as a Clergy Mentor for a Provisional Elder or Deacon or a Licensed Local Pastor? Do you feel called to this ministry? Clergy Mentors walk alongside these ministers as trusted elders and guides on their journey. The expectations of clergy mentors have changed in recent years as both the nature of ministry and the requirements for ordination have evolved. (Clergy
mentoring is different from Candidacy
mentoring for candidates working with dCOMs.) This training will:
- Update you on the ordination process and expectations of the Board of Ordained Ministry for provisional members
- Invite you to explore the nature of the ministry of mentoring
- Give you some tools to help mentees in theological reflection and reflection on the practice of ministry
- Connect you with other mentors and the Board of Ordained Ministry as a community for support and accountability and a source for insight and resources.
Current or potential mentors are invited to attend. Training will be from 9-12 on Thursday, Feb. 15 at First UMC, in Stafford Springs, CT led by Steve Garnaas-Holmes. If you have questions contact Steve at email@example.com
