Who are we looking for in the ordination process?
SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. The Commission on Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri is looking for your feedback. As a Diocese we need to recruit the next generation of ordained leaders in the church (specifically the COM works to recruit priests and deacons). Help us to know, who are we looking for? What qualities define a good deacon and a good priest?
We know that younger persons seeking ordination may exhibit these qualities in "seed form" while more mature persons will be expected to have these qualities more fully formed.
This form can be filled out by individuals in the diocese (lay and clergy), and groups: vestries, youth groups, adult groups. If you are filling this form out on behalf of a group, let us know the name of the group and the number of members.
