Day of Discernment: God is Calling - How will YOU Answer? (rescheduled)
Tuesday, April 16, 2013, 6:00pm - 9:00pm
This conference, hosted by the Commission on Ministry, will provide an overview of the discernment process, consideration of the various ministries of lay persons as well as deacons and priests, and models of Christian discernment.
Those expected to attend are the people discerning their next steps in ministry (called Aspirants), their rectors and one or more members of their Discernment Committees. Individuals who want to attend by themselves for information and exploration are also invited. Those considering ordination should have already contacted the Commission on Ministry.
The role of the Discernment Committee is very important at the early stage of the process. We have found that this conference helps the Committee members understand better what is expected of them, their subsequent meetings with the Aspirant and the report they will submit to the COM at the completion of their meetings.
A light supper will be offered.
This event was postponed from its original date of February 9, 2013 due to Winter Storm Nemo. Registrations were closed on February 1, and we will not be accepting any new registrations.
