Part-time Ministry Report

Since its inception in May 2018, the Association of United Church Clergy (aUCC) has heard a range of concerns that continue to grow in number and scope regarding part-time ministry.  We have now completed a report looking into the trials and possibilities associated with this ever-increasing trend.

Part-time Possibilities

Revisioning of part-time ministry could mean something other than “full time ministry lite.”
