Orientation to Ministry (Highland: First)
The Board of Ordained Ministry is holding two (2) “Orientation to Ministry”events. The first one will be held on Saturday, July 23 at First United Methodist Church of Highland, 57 Vineyard Avenue, Highland, NY. The second one will be held on Saturday, July 30 at First United Methodist Church, 227 East Lincoln Avenue, Mt Vernon, NY (click for event details). They will both start at 10 am and conclude at 2 pm. You must register since lunch will be provided.
Please help us by sharing this information with any persons who might be interested in ministry in the New York Annual Conference (high school students, young adults and adults). Attendance at an Orientation to Ministry is a REQUIREMENT for any person to become certified for either licensed or ordained ministry (2012 Book of Discipline). This means that anyone who is inquiring, exploring, or declaring their intention to be a candidate for ministry is required to attend one of these events before they are certified as a candidate for ministry.
PLEASE share this registration information in your local church and district. This is the link to register for these events: https://ny-reg.brtapp.com/2016-OrientationtoMinistry-Summer Share it today. Remember, we can only accommodate 50 participants at each event.
