University United Methodist Church

Is God calling you to licensed/ordained ministry?

The Board of Ordained Ministry invites you to a day of vocational discernment. We want to help you discern God’s call on your life. If the Holy Spirit is leading you to pursue licensed or ordained ministry, your life is about to change! We believe that God calls people from many walks of life to lead the church in making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. The United Methodist Church needs Elders, Deacons, and Local Pastors for a wide variety of ministry settings. We can’t wait to meet you and discover your gifts for ministry!

At the Candidacy Summit, we will review the different educational and professional journeys into ministry, taking time at the event to look at your personal situation and the best path forward.

The Candidacy Summit is a full-day, required event for people who are already in the candidacy process. If you aren’t in the process yet, but want more information and inspiration, you are welcome to come for the morning session and lunch.
