Discernment: Early Intervention
Vocational Assessment | Experienced pastors can choose to go through the vocational assessment process to assist in discerning ministry transitions. These assessments are available through the Midwest Ministry Development Network – an ecumenical, church owned service whose mission is to strengthen and care for persons in ministry. Contact the Department of Ordered Ministry or your regional conference superintendent to request a referral.
Counseling | The Evangelical Covenant Church has access to a nationwide database of over 4,000 faith-based, licensed professional therapists. Most listings are in major metropolitan areas. We will provide you with a list or assist you in researching appropriate, culturally competent resources in your geographic area for you, your family, or members of your congregation.
Guidance | The Ordered Ministry staff is available to provide vocational guidance and advocacy through the open-to-call process.
