Orientation to Ministry

Orientation to Ministry (9:30 - noon) AND Track B (noon - 2:30)

Track A:  9:30-noon:  The Orientation is a requirement for anyone pursuing licensed or ordained ministry.  However, this initial gathering is open to anyone who would like to learn more about the various types of set-apart ministry that exist within the United Methodist Church.  Information will be presented about the broad range of opportunities including CLM, professional certification, local pastor, and ordained ministry. 

Track B:  noon – 2:30:  The afternoon session will be for those candidates who have completed the group candidacy process and are now looking for information regarding the Course of Study or seminary options.  Information regarding expectations after certification for local pastors, educational requirements and financial aid will be presented.  Track B is not a Disciplinary requirement but is strongly encouraged by our Board of Ministry.

Track A participants may stay for Track B if they wish provided space is available.
