If you are just beginning to explore your call to ministry, plan to join a New England Conference Ministry Exploration Summit. A summit is a gathering of folks in the early stages of candidacy or discernment as well as experienced Clergy and Laypersons from the different ministry paths. Anyone interested in lay, licensed or ordained ministry is welcomed and encouraged to join one of these events. 

Participation in a Summit is required to become a Certified Candidate or a Certified Lay Minister. Participation in a summit fulfills the "Orientation to Ministry" requirement. Summits are offered twice each year (usually January and August).

Registration Deadline:  December 27, 2018
