Introducing the

VERMONT SCHOOL OF MINISTRY
(A partner with the Northeast School of Ministry)

Vermont Conference
United Church of Christ

 

Due to the many changes in the educational landscape and the emerging needs of the local churches for part time pastors and the ‘seeker’ nature of many persons in our communities we introduce the Vermont School of Ministry.

 

The Northeast School of Ministry began as a conversation of the NYCUCC, CTUCC, MECUCC, MACUCC, NHCUCC and VTCUCC gathered in 2013, with guidance from the New York School of Ministry recognizing that all of our Conferences shared these needs.

 

NESOM embraces shared partnership, and believes that through interdependent leadership we are better together than as individual conferences in providing a foundation for the emerging needs of our congregations.

The Vermont School of Ministry will provide an opportunity for

1. …individuals to enrich and deepen their journeys of faith in ways that are not easily available in our local churches thereby becoming leaven in the mission and ministry of their local church;
2. …individuals who are exploring a call to licensed ministry to develop the personal and professional formation for ministry, the knowledge, skills and supervised experience in partnership with a Committee on Ministry and ultimately be examined and named as ‘licensable pending call’.

The Hungry Heart - Available for Loan

 

 

As you are no doubt aware, Vermont has an opiate addiction crisis.  The Hungry Heart is a documentary film chronicling the lives of those addicted to opiates in St. Albans, VT and the doctor who helped them lead lives of sobriety.

The Department of Mission has purchased three copies of The Hungry Heart DVD and study guides for loan to Conference churches.  Under the licensing agreement with the producers, each church would have to pay an additional fee of $25 for each use to be collected by the Conference, and a showing would have to be limited to a congregational showing such as a Lent or Advent study, a showing to a church youth group or a showing at a congregational meeting.  If a church wished to show the documentary to the community at large, then the church would have to negotiate an additional fee with the producers.

To arrange a loan of The Hungry Heart from the Conference please email or call Sybil McShane (800 286 0248, mcshanes@vtcucc.org).  To learn more about The Hungry Heart visit http://thehungryheartmovie.org/.
