Licensed Local Pastor


The purpose of the School for License as a Local Pastor is to foster the spiritual growth and skill development of persons called into ministry.  Students share in collegial fellowship, worship, study and practical experience, which enable them to qualify for a License as a Local Pastor and service in a congregation.  The school emphasizes practical preparation for ministry, and the development of attitudes that will lead to future growth by each participant.  The focus will be on understanding the local congregation and leading the congregation – worship and preaching, sacraments, weddings, funerals, pastoral leadership, Christian education and formation, and pastoral care.
