Two times a year ordinands will meet immediately following the Regional Meetings with two or three pastors – likely members of the Ordaining Council, sometimes a guest – to lead you through times of teaching and discussion to help you grow as a person in your ministry. Each time we meet we’ll deal with some foundational theology, a pertinent aspect of “doing ministry” and give time to prepare you for the interview. We’ll have practice interviews.
Ordinands must attend the coaching sessions as well until they are fully approved for Ordination. You will appreciate the Practice Sessions for Interviews. Please notice that Interviews will now be scheduled in June each year. Two days are set aside – not for you but for the Ordaining Council. Each interview is around two – three hours long. You will only need to be present after the two years of preparation for the interview. If we are successful in coaching, you will be successful in presentation.
