Pastoral Vocation Support

Support Pastoral Vocation efforts in the Office of Theology and Worship, particularly the Company of New Pastors. Company of New Pastors seeks to deepen and sustain the theological foundation of pastoral leaders focusing on the critical period of vocational formation, beginning in seminary and continuing into the first years of ministry, helping establish and nurture habits of theological reflection and spiritual formation to sustain a lifetime of ministry. The objectives of the Company of New Pastors are simple: to encourage new pastoral leaders (and their mentors) to engage in daily prayer, daily scripture reading and regular and ordered theological reflection in community with others. Yet despite their simplicity, these disciplines can be transformational. Pastoral leaders who are, first and foremost, dedicated disciples can lead worshiping communities to be communities of disciples.
