The Ministerial Formation Network Coordinating Team has been hard at work and we are looking forward to launching a pilot of the new Ministerial Formation Network next month. We will be offering the key components of discernment support, collegiality, and training and education to aspirants and candidates in up to seven chapters/identity groups. In addition to groups in the Canada, Mass Bay, Southeast and Florida UUMA chapters, we also hope to form groups of aspirants and candidates of color who participate in Finding Our Way Home, trans aspirants and candidates who are members of TRUUsT and geographically isolated aspirants and candidates in the middle two time zones of the United States. We have just finalized the job descriptions and leadership and participant applications and are sharing these widely with our selected chapters/groups. If you are a member of one of these chapters/groups, we hope you will take a look at the job descriptions and consider whether you are interested in applying to be a part of the pilot as a participant or a leader. Training will be offered for leaders in November and the aspirants and candidates will have their first meeting in December. We are confident we are going to learn a lot during this pilot and look forward to using what we learn to make the design of this new program even better.
