Clergy Excellence
Cultivating clergy and leaders for faithful and flourishing ministry

Developing, Equipping, and Empowering today’s leaders for the church of tomorrow!

The Board of Ordained Ministry works with candidates for ministry to ensure they are well-equipped for the work of pastoring local congregations.

Through the Transition Into Ministry program, selected young clergy receive special mentoring and support through the early stages of their ministries.
