Preparing for Search and Call Process - Session 3

Start date: Thursday, April 10, 2014
Start time: 8:30 AM
End date: Thursday, April 10, 2014
End time: 1:00 PM

This series of events are for those seminarians who are middlers or seniors.  The events are designed to provide valuable information for navigating the entire Search & Call process within the United Church of Christ no matter what Association/Conference you are in Discernment with or where you will be circulating your Profile.

All Events will be held at the Congregational Church of Weston, 130 Newton Street, Weston, MA.

This winter MESA will be rolling out a new way to do the UCC Minister’s profile. This will include some of the fundamental elements of the current profile, but will also allow the option for tailoring it in new ways for different settings and ministry opportunities. While we have been in conversation around this new profile format, we have not yet seen the final product. Conference Staff will be having training on this starting in December. Given this new design, we felt it would be most helpful to revise our Seminarian Search and Call workshop so that we could incorporate the new format. As a result we have rescheduled the 3 workshops to begin in the new year. Please make a note and make a point to attend, this will be a helpful series.  It may be helpful to know that current profiles will still be good for 18months (or the length that the Oxford Background check is still valid)
