Discussing ministerial formation and ordination

I’d like to point those interested in ministerial formation and ordination options to a paper from the “third-way” Vineyard USA: a group that’s notoriously hard to pigeon-hole. (To describe them is to say more about yourself than them, so I shan’t.)

Get a copy of their 2002 paper, Ordination, Licensing & Commissioning from Tri Robinson, the senior pastor of the Boise (Idaho) Vineyard. (See also the Boise Vineyard’s Estes-filled Vineyard College of Mission.)

It is in PDF, and you’ll find it at the bottom of their articles page.

Take about twenty minutes to read it. I’ll be back once you have.
