“An order is a covenant community within the church to mutually support, care for, and hold accountable its members for the sake of the life and mission of the church.  These orders, separately or together, seek to respond to the spiritual hunger among clergy for a fulfilling sense of vocation, for support among peers during this stressful time of change in the Church, and for a deepening relationship with God.” (2016 Book of Discipline, paragraph 306)
