Ministry Institute

The Central Atlantic Conference Ministry Team and the Potomac Association UCC Committee on Church and Ministry sponsor this sequence of four institutes in the History, Governance, Theology and Ministry of the United Church of Christ. These courses follow the guidelines prepared by History, Theology and Polity teachers on the essentials of a basic one semester course.

The Saturday Institute format is designed to serve the needs of persons who cannot enroll in a regular semester-length seminary course to cover this material. Completion of all four sessions is equivalent to a “traditional” or online course in UCC History/Polity requirement.

Goals for the Ministry Institute:

  • Forms of ministry: licensed, commissioned, ordained; ministerial partners (CC/DoC) emerging patterns for authorized ministry; ministry of all the baptized
  • Structures and patterns of accountability, i.e., ordination, standing, discipline
  • Ministerial ethics (Ordained Minister’s Code, in MOM; other ethics documents)
  • Understandings of ministry in the UCC: “embodiment” and “empowerment” models
  • The ecumenical heritage and stance of the United Church of Christ
