Called to serve

Whether you have recently felt called to professional ministry or have served Christ in an ordained or licensed capacity for decades, the Office of Clergy Excellence and the Michigan Conference Board of Ordained Ministry are here to support you as you live out your calling.

The tabs on the left are meant to help you find the appropriate resources:

  •  The tool box on the Board of Ministry page is a wealth of information for individual clergy persons, as well as members of congregational and district committees and BOM members.
  • Those considering ministry as a Licensed Local Pastor, Ordained Deacon or Ordained Elder can start with Exploring Ministry.
  • GPS offers resources for current active clergy persons (Full and Associate Members and Licensed Local Pastors) to be used for God’s Positioning System, the new Eight Year Assessment process in Michigan. We are still developing this process; the resources included here will be updated regularly.

Don’t know where to start? Let us help! Please contact Executive Assistant Debbie Stevenson or Director Rev. Jennifer Browne.
