Upcoming District Committee Meetings
The Pensacola District Board of Methodist Missions, Inc. will meet at noon April 24 (Monday) at the district office, 901 East Gadsden Street, Pensacola. Lunch will be provided for those attending.
The Pensacola District Committee on Ministry (dCOM) meetings February 16, April 4, and August 1, 2017.
We have a great problem -- too many ministry candidates. Our dCOM meetings are about 8 hours long and we cannot see everyone that we need to see and give them appropriate time. Therefore, I am setting up, additional meetings to help 1) meet their schedules, 2) to provide for the number of candidates and 3) to make sure no one falls through the cracks somewhere.
April 4 -- This meeting is to get the latest group mentoring class certified, get those local pastors that could not meet on February 16th, to speak with Certified Lay Ministers that are due for renewal, to speak with candidates transferring into our district, and to catch whoever else needs to speak with us PRIOR to Annual Conference.
August 1 -- This meeting is earlier than most of our Fall meetings to provide for easy access to seminary students before they return to school and for those looking to be recommended for Provisional status. One of the new requirements is that we have "mock interviews" to help those seeking Provisional status have an opportunity to see what Conference Board interviews are like and to allay much, at least some anyway, of the stress and anxiety some have about these interviews. Time and place TBA at a later time.
In Christ, Bob Bailey
