I have received and read my commissioning packet from my Board of Ordained Ministry. It is a frightening thing. I have under three months to write about 80-90 pages of text, not to speak of all the forms, examinations, and transcripts that must be generated.
The Florida Conference has completely depleted its supply of candidacy mentors, and so I have none, at the moment. That is highly unlikely to change before I submit my packet to DCOM in April, and BOOM in October.
To any readers who have served on Boards of Ordained Ministry in recent years or are currently serving as candidacy mentors: would you be willing to read and critique part (or all) of my commissioning paperwork if I can get it to you within sixty days?
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
