First-Ever Licensing School in Wisconsin

The purpose of the Licensing School as a Local Pastor is to foster the spiritual growth and skill development of persons called into ministry.  Students will share in collegial fellowship, worship, study and practical experience, which will enable them to qualify for a License as a Local Pastor and service in a congregation. The school emphasizes practical preparation for ministry, and the development of attitudes that will lead to future growth by each participant.  The focus will be on understanding the local congregation and leading the congregation in worship and preaching, sacraments, weddings, funerals, pastoral leadership, Christian education and formation, spiritual formation, evangelism and mission, and pastoral care.
