Diocesan Ministry Development

Empowering believers to advance the Kingdom of God within themselves and the world around them.

The Division of Diocesan Ministry Development is an arm of the Diocese of the Mid-South committed to the empowerment, equipping, and strengthening of her members for the work of the ministry. Under the auspices and oversight of the Commission on Ordained Ministry, the Division of Diocesan Ministry Development will work to provide training, seminars, workshops, and retreats designed to “empower” the people of the Mid-South Diocese for effective Christian service. The Division will also work closely with the Commission on Ordained Ministry to provided continuing education opportunities for ordained clergy and commissioned ministers.
