Posted on Mar 19, 2019 in Uncategorized

YOU ARE INVITED TO THE FIRST ANNUAL

REGIONAL COUNCIL 15

ASSOCIATION OF MINISTERS MEETING

 

WHEN: Wednesday, May 22nd, 3 to 5 p.m. with social evening following; and Thursday, May 23rd, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

 

WHO IS INVITED: All ministry personnel (ordained, diaconal, designated lay), active or retired; retained on the roll; and candidates for ministry within Region 15.

 

PURPOSE: To begin to lay the foundation for a voluntary Association of Ministers within
Region 15.

 

WHERE: Regional Council Office (former Maritime Conference Centre, 21 Wright Street, Sackville), in conjunction with the annual meeting of Regional Council 15.

 

COSTS: There may be some small cost associated with Wednesday supper. Lunch on Thursday will be provided.

 

ACCOMODATION: When you register for meals and accommodations with Mount Allison University for the Regional Council meeting you will have the option to choose Wednesday night as well.

 

The General Council Executive has decided that each Region is responsible for determining the shape of an Association of Ministers within its bounds. In Region 15 that is being started through a Committee of the Region. But its shape and form are entirely up to the ministry personnel of the Region. The Regional Council Executive has nominated and elected a Committee to begin this work – with lots of room to add new folks! The Committee has identified a three-part focus: “Collegiality-Support-Advocacy.” The first stage of this process is to consult with potential members. Hence this meeting.

 

CONTENT OF THE MEETING ON MAY 22-23

Wednesday 3-5 p.m.: planning for the Consultation on the future, shape and actions of a
voluntary Association (which will happen next day);

Wednesday evening: shared supper and pub night;

Thursday 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.: consultation on the Association and developing plans for
moving forward.
