Local pastors are required to meet with their mentor pastors a minimum of once per quarter while in the Course of Study and under appointment. Meetings with the mentor pastor should address at least these four areas of ministry:
- Preaching and teaching the Word
- Worship and the sacraments
- Administration of the local church
- Personal growth and development
It is the responsibility of the Local Pastor to establish the appropriate meeting times and agendas for these meetings, with the approval of the Mentor Pastor and guidance of the District Superintendent and District Committee on Ministry.
