Are you Ready for the Pastoral Ministry?

Richard Gerber

If you are a seminarian studying for the pastoral ministry, consider signing up today to attend one of three Readiness for Ministry Seminars offered at three seminaries:

The Readiness for Ministry Seminars are geared for men who have completed at least one year of full-time seminary training. You don’t need to be a member of the OPC to attend the free seminars. If you live a distance from the seminaries, travel aid may be available to help cover expenses.

Readiness for Ministry Seminar

At the seminar, you will learn more about ministry in the OPC; network with OPC general secretaries, ministers, and elders; find out about internships and ministry positions; and learn more about ministry from a Reformed perspective.

During the Friday and Saturday event, the seminarians will introduce themselves to the group, give a 10-minute exhortation of a Scripture passage assigned in advance, and be part of a group trying to solve typical problems in Reformed ministries.

The following Monday, each participant may meet with one of the evaluators to discuss his observations of the student’s gifts.
