Ministry Without Collars: An Academy for Parish Leadership Session on Finding Your Place in God’s Church
Ministry is the work of the whole people of God. Our life in ministry is our response to God’s call to
us—God’s invitation to participate in God’s ongoing mission of redemption and reconciliation in all
the world.

All baptized are called upon to minister in some way or another, at church and in the wider world. Indeed, a parish couldn’t function without the many ministries, large and small, from its members. Some of those ministries are more formalized than others. Some are temporary in nature while others become beloved, permanent fixtures, part of parish life.

To understand better our opportunities and callings, The European Institute of Christian Studies (EICS) is pleased to present an APL online on March 18, 2023, at 15:00. During this session, an introduction into the role and support EICS plays within the Convocation will be discussed, and the updated Called to Ministry guidelines, which lays out in detail the certified roles for laity, will be presented. 
Some of these roles concern our worship life together and can be taught in your local congregation. Some worship roles require further education. Other roles are about carrying the gospel of Jesus Christ to the wider world or teaching aspects of the Christian faith in a variety of contexts. One role is even focused on exercising administrative oversight for congregational life.

Join us for a session which goes into more detail about these roles, how you can pursue them, and also listen to those who already serve in these roles.
