Are you considering ordained ministry? Training on a course or at theological college? About to embark on your first curacy - full or part-time? Tackling the issues in a realistic and thoughtful way, this in-depth book covers: how to discern a calling to ordained ministry; selection and training; choosing your first parish; CME and your curacy; working with the training incumbent; the personal impact of transition into ordained ministry; self-management; and, public ministry. This accessible and informative guide combines essential information, practical survival tips and theological reflection all honestly grounded in the writers' experience.
From 1998-2005 John Witcombe was the Dean of St John's College, Nottingham where he was responsible for training those preparing for ordination. In 2005 he was appointed as Director of Ordinands and Curate Training in the Diocese of Gloucester, and in 2010 became Director of Discipleship and Ministry and Residentiary Canon of Gloucester Cathedral. He has twenty five years' experience of ordained ministry in a wide variety of church traditions and social contexts and is the editor of The Curate's Guide.
To those seeking helpful advice and clear thinking about the journey to ordination and the day-to-day realities of parish ministry, this guide is of inestimable value. -- Canon Professor Martyn Percy, Principal, Ripon College
