BOOM - Candidacy/Clergy Mentor Training (LC)
Conference-wide training will be offered to all clergy in full connection (including part-time local pastors who have completed the course of study) at New York Annual Conference Center on October 23rd, from 10 AM to 2 PM.
The UMC Book of Discipline requires that all clergy and candidacy mentors be trained and then retrained every four years. This four-hour open training suffices for both but requires advance registration. To register please click the “REGISTER” button.
Attendees should bring a wi-fi-enabled device (preferably one bigger than a cell phone) to use during the training. We will cover the basics of mentoring, the process of candidacy, and a preview of UMCares (United Methodist Candidacy and Record Entry System). If you are not already entered into the system, you will be by the conclusion of the training.
Who needs this training?
- All mentors not trained or retrained in the past four years
- All mentors assigned to a candidate who have not yet taken the training.
