It is normal for every person in ministerial leadership to experience changes in ministry. A minister is constantly in need of additional training and growth in order to meet the changing needs of congregational life and society. The Church of the Nazarene expects all ordained clergy to continue a lifestyle of equipping and professional development. Opportunities are often informal, yet formal continuing education programs are also available. Further higher education, participation in workshops and seminars, and a life of reading and conversation on the things of God and God’s people are both encouraged and considered necessary for ministerial leadership.
