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.

Healthy Boundaries in the Context of Ministry Refresher Course

Jun 14th, 2023

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 one day refresher course is divided into two mornings and will support leaders who wish to establish healthy boundaries and safe and respectful congregational culture in the context of ministry.

June 14 & 15, 2023 (Wednesday/Thursday)
9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Prerequisite: Healthy Boundaries in the Context of Ministry Two Day Workshop
Cost: $35
