Called to Ministry Officer Training
Our Book of Order reminds us that Sessions have a responsibility to provide to newly-elected elders and deacons a period of study and preparation, after which the Session shall examine them as to their personal faith; knowledge of the doctrine, government and discipline contained in the Constitution of the church; and the duties of the ministry.
Those suggested topics form the basis of a new resource for officer training prepared by Tom Malone, with a focus on training officers in small-membership churches. Tom will be teaching a training event at Camp Fellowship that will utilize this resource to prepare church officers for their examination by the Session.
