Endorsement

I am off to Nashville today for the weekend.  Tomorrow affternoon I am to interview for Ecclesiastical Endorsement for my position as Chaplain here at Methodist Children’s Home.

Ecclesiastical Endorsement is a process by which the United Methodist Church  ensures that ministry provided in settings other than the local church are reresenting the denomination appropriately. It is, according to their website,

Ecclesiastical endorsement is an affirmation that a person is, or will be, performing a valid extension ministry consistent with the covenantal community of The United Methodist Church and has presented evidence of having the special education, experience, and skills necessary to perform that ministry.

So I am in Nashville for the weekend.
