Ministry Discernment Committee


To Members and Friends of St. James, Woodstock:


The Vestry is forming a Ministry Discernment Committee (MDC) consisting of seven members.  Written applications will be reviewed, and MDC members will be selected and commissioned by the Vestry at a special meeting of the Congregation.


We hope that you will prayerfully consider applying to serve on this Committee, and we request that you review resource documents relating to the ministry discernment process. 

The Vestry will use this application process to select committee candidates with the strongest combination of required skills, using the criteria outlined below. 


Ministry Discernment Committee members will be:

  • Knowledgeable of major areas of church life such as religious education, outreach, fellowship, pastoral care, finance, and music
  • Balanced in the attributes of organizational ability, broad theological awareness, computer skills
  • Pledged to conduct a discernment process that is fair and nondiscriminatory with respect to race, color, disability, sex, sexual orientation, age, and national origin
  • Committed to maintaining confidentiality and to seeking consensus
  • Well informed about the demands and time requirements of MDC service
  • Balanced by sex, age, interests, and tenure of membership to reflect the diversity of the congregation 

Completed applications are due by December 15, 2017, preferably by email to Barbara Johnson, Senior Warden (johnsonbl@usa.net">johnsonbl@usa.net), or they can be left for Barbara in a confidential folder in the Church office.
