Excellence for Ministry - A Focus on the Agenda for the Center for Clergy Excellence:
This session will focus on the creation of a system that will enable clergy to be resourced and supported throughout their ministry. It will be held Tue., Nov. 28, 2006, at St. James United Methodist Church, Tampa. The chair of this session is the Rev. David Dodge, executive director of the Florida Conference Center for Clergy Excellence.
As we begin to identify what distinguishes a person as being “excellent” in ministry, there are certain baseline assumptions that apply to all who are licensed or ordained. These baseline assumptions represent the starting point from which one then moves to a deeper and more complete understanding of one’s ministry. The developed understanding results in a ministry that rises above the norm.
With these understandings of what is fundamental we can then look to what defines excellence.
