Local Pastor Guidelines

Course of Study Links
 
(Contains General Information)
 
 
 
 


The United Methodist Book of Discipline provides guidelines for local pastors. Some basics include:
  • Make initial contact with an elder / deacon in your local parish.
  • Read The Christian as Minister (available from Cokesbury).
  • Visit with your district superintendent.
  • Make contact with your district committee on ordained ministry for help with the inquiry and discernment process. A mentor will be assigned to you for guidance and supervision.
  • If your ministry decision is affirmed and a setting is available, you may be appointed to a part-time or full-time ministry setting. Full-time local pastors are required by the Discipline to complete four Course of Study classes per calendar year. Part-time local pastors are required to complete two classes per calendar year.
  • Attend licensing school facilitated by your annual conference's board of ordained ministry.
  • Register to attend Course of Study School
