Ministry office

The Church of the Brethren believes in the priesthood of all believers, meaning that we understand all members to be in ministry. However, we call out certain people for licensing or ordination to the set-apart ministry. We provide multiple tracks for education and training, and we also are serious about supporting and sustaining ministers once they’re established in leadership.
