Church and Community Engagement

Clergy Development

" equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ."   (Eph. 4:12-13)

Priests and pastors need to continue learning and developing through their entire ministry. The Office of Church and Community Engagement (CCE) develops partnerships to offer opportunities for post-seminary and in-seminary development -- particularly the development of neglected competencies and skills that can have a significant impact on the effectiveness of clergy ministry and leadership.

This includes fostering purposeful sustained interdenominational clergy interactions that nurture a culture of mutual support, accountability, and commitment to continuing development.

CCE works with clergy across a wide range of ages, stages, and setting of ministry. CCE seeks to create and support clergy networks for mutual support, accountability, and commitment to continued learning and development.
