Ministry Discernment Committee

The Vestry has commissioned nine members of the congregation to serve on a Ministry Discernment Committee (MDC), to prepare for the selection of the next clergy leader for St. James.  Members of the MDC meet regularly: (1) To study and reflect on the ministries of the congregation, current and future; (2) To discern which model of leadership best enacts and supports the next phase of ministry; and (3) To identify clergy candidates who have the gifts and skills to partner with the congregation in these ministries. This process of faithful discernment is done in partnership between the people in the congregation, the Bishop, and the clergy person.
