Members in Discernment, or MIDs, are those people within a congregation who are seeking authorized ministry in the UCC. MIDs find their path through this process in many ways. Some go to seminary, some take an alternate path under the direction of their COMs and mentors within the Association.
IKC MIDs can join one another in support and community on our MIDnet Facebook page. Email Rev. Hawkins to be invited into this private group. The MIDnet also meets regularly by Zoom for conversation and support.
MIDs and COMs use the Manual on Ministry, created by the UCC National Setting, to guide their work and discernment.
