DISCERNMENT AND ORDINATION

Chicago Metropolitan Association of the Illinois Conference of the United Church of Christ

Ministry is a relational art and enterprise. Those who are engaged in ministry and in discernment for authorized ministry by an Association experience this relational nature as they engage complex ecclesiastical relationships. And because ministry is relational, a relational model of the discernment process has been adopted by the CMA as the Association "seeks to determine the fitness and qualifications of candidates in discernment of authorized ministry. " 1 The process is designed to undergird a person's discernment for authorized ministry by building a support network comprised of the local church and the CMA Church and Ministry.
