About: 

Ministry training for non-ordained people is overseen by the Ministry Training Coordinator who administrates funding for and facilitates courses for training.

Ongoing ministry training for ordained clergy is overseen by the Bishop’s Chaplain.

Ministry Training

‘Ministry training’ encompasses a lot, but in 2022 the focus of our Ministry Training Coordinator is empowering the unordained people of God for everyday mission and ministry. We hope to see our people thriving in faith and life, getting a clearer sense of what God is calling them into, and making concrete steps towards that calling – regardless of whether that calling is to be expressed within or beyond the walls of the church.

Alongside our regional EQUIP days, we are looking at firming up our ‘leadership pipelines’ so that there’s clearer pathways within our Diocese for people who feel God inviting them to step up into something new. We also expect to find ways of integrating insights from Christian Coaching in various ministry spaces. 

  • EQUIP is a regional clergy and lay ministry training day designed for anyone to attend to learn about ministry skills. It is run in Marlborough, Nelson, Waimea and Mawhera.
  • POMD  (Post Ordination Ministry Development) is a programme for those newly ordained or new to the Diocese and is designed to cover a range of ministry topics from five key ministry areas – Church Practices, Leadership and Management, Pastoral Care, Age-Specific Ministries and Self-care.
  • Pastoral Care Training: All clergy are required to complete an advanced Pastoral Care Training course like Clinical Pastoral Education or other approved course.
  • Discipleship Pathway  
  • Ridley College Certificate
