We oversee the selection, training and deployment of ordained ministers, ensuring the Church is well equipped to serve God in living out its mission for many generations to come.
We’re supporting dioceses to develop proactive plans to grow vocations to ministry, by sharing good practice, ensuring proper resourcing and providing quality training for DDOs and advisers.
Our work is guided by the vision for ministry agreed by the House of Bishops and articulated in Ministry for a Christian Presence in every community (GSMisc 1224). See link below.
"Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.Matthew 9:35-38
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples, 'The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.'"
