vocational discernment coordinator

The VDC coordinates the candidacy mentoring process in their annual conference. They coordinateimplement, and strengthen the candidacy process through recruitingtraining, and assigning mentors to new candidates…

by

  • Coordinating candidacy mentoring across the annual conference.
  • Being that one person who’s a consistent contact concerning the candidacy process.
  • Connecting dCOMs, BOMs, and district superintendents to make sure correct information is shared.
  • Ensuring the process remains a vocational discernment process and NOT “hoops to jump through”.

Exploration creates sacred space for young adults, ages 18-26, to be in MEANINGFUL FELLOWSHIPPASSIONATE WORSHIPTHEOLOGICAL REFLECTION, and PRACTICAL WORKSHOPS as they discern whether God’s call on their life is to ordained ministry in The United Methodist Church and what faithful steps they can take in response.

On Saturday of Exploration, we’ll spend all 3 workshop sessions talking about the work you’re doing, what trends you’ve noticed, what needs you discovered, and developing strategies for engaging young adults around call in meaningful ways. This conversation is for you (VDCs) and any leader working in a vocational discernment context (e.i., youth pastors, collegiate ministers, BOM reps, camp and retreat settings.)
