Commitment

Outlined here are the commitments involved with the Ministerial Program. Please read and then respond if you feel ready and able to make and keep these commitments at this time.

  • To finish the entire program within two years, which will require approximately 10–15 hours of study and participation per week.
  • To communicate with your mentor immediately if you find yourself falling behind this pace for any reason.
  • To stay focused on only one course per month. Like the introduction to the Workbook of A Course in Miracles which instructs, "Do not undertake to do more than one set of exercises a day", this program similarly requires a willingness to stay focused on only one course per month and to not "skip ahead". 
  • To submit all of the online assignments for each course to a teacher for review.
  • Commit to a weekly call with a mind training/study partner to discuss assignments, materials from the program, ask questions about the program, or look at thoughts for the purpose of healing.
  • Commit to a monthly review call with a mentor to answer questions about your progress and to receive support for the purpose of healing and mind training.

Can you agree to the above commitments to participate fully in the Ministerial Program?

YES
NO

Please write a letter of intention, describing your reasons and inspiration for participating in the Ministerial Program. Write from your heart!

All ministers and ministers-in-training are required to attend a Living Miracles retreat every two years, either as a participant or as a volunteer. This is a primary means of deepening in your commitment to healing through contact and collaboration with other ministers. As a volunteer, this becomes a way to serve through demonstration.

Are you prepared to attend a retreat every two years?

YES
NO

Church Membership

All ministers and ministers in training are required to be members of the church, and so all participants in the program will automatically be granted membership for one year.

At the end of the one-year period you will need to renew your church membership (and pay the $40 annual membership fee) if you choose to continue with Ministerial Training and/or to continue as a member of the church.

To become a member of our church, you would need to be:

  • In agreement with our Statement of Faith. Click here to read.
  • In an ongoing relationship with the church. Click here to read.

Are you prepared to keep your church membership up to date?

YES
NO


Agreement

Please type your name as your signature, to indicate that you understand and are in agreement with the following statements.

  • I understand that being a minister with this church is primarily about a relationship, and a shared desire to serve God.
  • I understand that the purpose of this program is the strengthening of my relationship with the Holy Spirit and undoing of the ego, which will involve letting go of what I think I know, and deepening in trust, acceptance, and faith.
  • I understand that completion of the program is a joint endeavor, and I am open to guidance and an individualized approach in support of my becoming a commissioned minister.
  • I understand that after I've become a commissioned minister, I'll then have the option of completing the Counseling Course if I want to become a licensed minister. 

Sign and date:


* Discontinuation of the Ministerial Program

If at any point you become unable to meet the requirements of the Ministerial Program you may, through communication with the Dean, be un-enrolled from the Ministerial Program, and instead be enrolled in the MMT Program without additional cost. The MMT Program does not include ministerial training or the Counseling Module.

I understand and accept that if I do not keep the commitments and requirements of the Ministerial Program (to be determined through an evaluation period as arranged with the Dean) I will be un-enrolled in the Ministerial Program and my ministerial training will discontinue. My tuition fee will be non-refundable and non-transferable.

I understand

I understand and accept that if I choose to re-enroll in the Ministerial Program at a later date I will be required to pay the Ministerial Program tuition fee and meet the requirements/prerequisites laid out by the Dean. The Ministerial Program tuition fee is the difference between the MMT Program and the Ministerial Program, and any other additional modules over and above the two-year MMT Program.

I understand
