Candidating for ministry

Ross Rhoads, former Senior Pastor of Calvary Church, passed into the presence of the Lord on May 24, 2017.

The memorial service will be on Saturday, June 3 at 3PM at Calvary. Candidating in the huge Sanctuary of Calvary Church in December 2005 was a daunting experience for me!

I will honor the intellectual property of others, assuring that appropriate attribution is given to avoid intentionally creating the impression that the work of others is my own.

The primary qualifications for the work of the Christian Ministry are the sense of a divine call, spiritual and intellectual gifts, the graces of Christian character, and the fruits of Christian service.

4.3 The Church recognises its pastoral responsibility to care for the welfare of its Ministers.

I will make myself a candidate for a pulpit or other position of ministry only with serious intent, and I will observe the established candidating procedures of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

I will stay informed of the latest rules and policies of the UUA’s Ministerial Fellowship Committee.
