The inaugural offering of the Jerusalem Ministry Formation program is scheduled for January 10–23, 2017. We are excited about the impact of this new course on the participants, as well as on the life of the church in various parts of our global Communion. With numbers limited to around 36 people, there are just a few places remaining.

The Jerusalem Ministry Formation program is a special course tailored for the needs of people preparing for ministry, whether as clergy or lay leaders, and including clergy in the first five years of ordained ministry.

The program will include sessions on Anglican identity and mission, as well as postcolonial hermeneutics, as we assist people to prepare for their ministry in new and challenging contexts during the next few decades. There will be opportunities for small group reflection and prayer each day.

Numbers are limited to 36 participants, with two-thirds of the places reserved for people from the Global South. This will help to ensure a good mix of participants that reflects the diversity of the Anglican Church around the globe.
