"What is God calling me to?"

Discernment is the intentional investigation of “What is God calling me to?” The process of making choices through the eyes of faith, bringing us closer to the person Christ wants us to be.  

The Office of Clergy Formation and Transition Ministry helps guide individuals through the discernment process. A process designed to help you discover where God wants you to be.  We provide a path that works in community to establish your gifts as a person of faith. Discernment is not simply a path to ordained ministry; it is an active process of engaging the community of God to discover yourself.

All discernment, lay and ordained, begins in the congregational setting. Your church community is there to help.  An active discernment utilizes congregational leadership, sponsoring clergy, the Bishop, the Commission on Ministry and the Standing Committee--facilitated by the Office of Formation and Transition Ministry.
