The Committee on Ministry Resourcing, through its Director, has the responsibility of resourcing, consolidating and extending the Church’s work and witness in conjunction with congregations, presbyteries, committees and bodies under the jurisdiction of the Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Queensland.
The Committee possesses a particular pastoral oversight for all accredited ministry workers under its care and approves all those seeking accreditation as accredited ministry workers for ministry within congregations and other bodies over which the Assembly has authority.
The Committee acts in an advisory capacity in helping congregations and presbyteries in developing ministry plans for church renewal and church planting. From time to time, the Committee runs conferences and seminars to assist the church in various facets of ministry.
All chaplains, including hospital chaplains, work under the direction of the Committee.
The Committee also publicises the work of Presbyterian Inland Mission › within Queensland.
The Committee oversees the Church’s Ministry Training Network (MTN) in which trainees are given an opportunity to experience life in full-time ministry under an experienced supervisor (generally a minister) over a two year period.
This is formative in the trainees and the church’s mind as to the trainees suitability for a life in full-time ministry. This experience often leads to the trainee’s entering into formal theological education at the Queensland Theological College.
Some will become candidates for the ministry, some will train with an emphasis on youth work, others with overseas mission in mind. Visit the Queensland Theological College for courses overview and application forms.
