Wesleyan Education & Ministry
District Board of Ministerial Development
Districts play a critical role in the development of ministers through the leadership of the district superintendent and the counsel of the District Board of Ministerial Development. The DBMD is entrusted with the nurture and development of ministers in training and those in service to the church. DBMD interview, evaluate, and advise ministerial students by using sets of report forms. Education and the Ministry offer training presentations as a resource to DBMD's to enhance their ministry. It is vital that channels of communication be kept open between pastors, district superintendents, District Boards of Ministerial Development, and our colleges regarding the progress and promise of ministers in training.
