CloisterBrewing a New Thing!

“An old story, a new gathering space, original brick cloister,

A repurposed counter, familiar songs, new venue,

A woman brew master, a woman breaking bread, vessels for a new brew,

A vessel for timeless hope, tables for four, the Table reaching around the world! "

Maumee Valley Presbytery entered The “Black Cloister” to claim 

Whose we are: The People of God.

And who we are: Beloved, broken, forgiven, freed.

And we went out with a purpose, and the promise that we are never alone.

~Thanks be to God who is doing a new thing!

The Maumee Valley Presbytery and the Commissioned Ruling Elder Committee are excited to announce the creation of a new Commissioned Ruling Elder Program (formerly Lay Pastor Program) to launch this September 2017.  Do you feel a call to ministry but are not able to go to seminary? Do you know of someone in your church that has the gifts of ministry? Do you want to explore how God might use you in a new way in the local church?  If so, this program may be for you!

     Enclosed you will find a document entitled: Vision and Scope of the CRE Program. It explains the CRE training program that begins this fall. It is a 30 month program. It involves online classes with Union Seminary (www.upsem.edu/pathways for more information) plus a Bible Content Course, a Preaching course, and a few other locally generated courses to fill out what Union Seminary provides.

     Some of the requirements to be a part of this program are: the student must be an Elder in a PCUSA church (or working toward it within a year) and the student must be endorsed by their local Session, and the student must be interviewed by the CRE committee prior to acceptance. Please read the enclosed document for a deeper understanding of expectations and requirements!

     We are excited about launching this new training program.  If you have questions feel free to contact anyone on the CRE committee who are listed below. The deadline for the completed application to be to us is June 1, 2017. Please send it to the Maumee Valley Presbytery at: 700 East Melrose Avenue, Findlay, Ohio 45840—attention CRE program.

                                         With Anticipation,

                                                The CRE committee of Maumee Valley Presbytery
