Are you a lay leader for a congregation which has called or is calling a pastor who will be serving in that for the first time?
New resources are being developed to help with the transition from seminary to a first call in ministry. Members of the SW Association that are working on this are: Rev. Mark Yurs, Rev. Leslie Schenk, Dave Pearson and Rev. Joanne Thomson.
The Southwest Association, along with the three other Associations in the Wisconsin Conference, has adopted a new process for licensed ministry. Both the Conference Commission on Church and Ministry and our national MESA (Ministerial Excellence, Support, and Authorization) team have developed a new framework for understanding licensed ministry. We encourage you to take a look at www.ucc.org/ministers to learn more about the changes affecting the authorization of ministry in the United Church of Christ.
