Ministry Events

The Competency Examen is the framework for our Ministry Events and a unique self-reflection toll specifically designed for pastors and leaders in ministry. It is five-step process based on the Ignation Prayer form known as the consciousness Examen.

As an individual, the Competency Examen can be used as a basis for monthly prayer and discernment, for personal and professional growth.

The Competency Examen can also be used in conjunction with peer-to-peer conversation or in small-group meetings.

We have specific events which will help you grow in your core competencies, and while MCCanada and MCUSA has identified six Core Competencies, we will also focus on intercultural ministry as a diverse MCEC family of faith in our Canadian cultural reality.

Through the Learning Commons, MCEC equips pastors through specialized programs and offers engaging opportunities for you to grow your pastoral core competencies. Collaboration is a core value of the Learning Commons; this is a time to work together as colleagues to develop some guiding questions for the year ahead which will help in planning of events and resourcing that will be the most beneficial.

Healthy Boundaries in the Context of Ministry Full Workshop

May 11th, 2022

Ministry is about coming alongside those to whom we minister in the messiness of life - messiness that takes us to deep and profound places. In this context, it can be challenging to define and set boundaries; yet, to do so is critical for healthy relationships.

This two-day workshop is divided into four mornings and will support leaders who wish to establish healthy boundaries and safe and respectful congregational culture in the context of ministry.
