process. Ninety (90)
pastors are currently
enrolled in the program,
including all of the
Conference’s current
provisional clergy.
Crucible has two active
classes, one which
began in February 2011
and one in September
of 2011. Those currently
enrolled in the two
Crucible classes as
students range from
those who have
been in ministry 20+
years to our newest
commissioned leaders.
Crucible will graduate
its first group in January
2013.
Though it is in its
beginning stages, the
impact of Crucible is
beginning to show.
Students are working
prescriptions they
learn in Crucible
that are making a
significant impact in
their pastoral leadership.
Their confidence
and competency are
growing.
The Next Generations
Leadership Ministry
Intern Program
is
for undergraduate
students interested
in exploring a call
to ordained ministry
during the summer.
This paid, 12-week
internship will allow
selected interns to
be immersed in a
vocational ministry
setting with intentional
opportunities to deeply
discern their call to
clergy as a vocation
with their specifically
assigned mentor. Each
ministry intern will
develop leadership skills
for effective ministry
as they partner with
clergy and laity in a
local church.
