    Clerical Formation Process

    in Religion

    What do you suggest as the process to train and develop clergy? Clergy Formation is the process of discerning, identifying, equipping, empowering, and releasing clergy to minister.   Individuals will discern a sense of call with their pastor, local church, and the Diocese; they will undergo background, psychological and marital evaluations; take an ordination exam; participate in interviews with the Bishop, ordination committe and others as they go through the process of clerical formation.


    Though a degree may not be require for ordination, it is expected that candidates will avail themselves of theological training and continuing education opportunities.


    What type of knowledge and level of scripturaldevelopment should one have before they are sent out.

    Women being called Missionaries -  MIssionaries comes from the Latin MISSIO which Latin for the Greek word apoostolos.  The Latin word missio is where we get our word missionary from.

    Homosexuality & Christianity: What did Jesus say?

    in Current Events

    Nicholas Snow welcomes Rev Clinton Crawhaw, Senior Pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church of the Coachella Valley, to discuss what Jesus did and did not say about homosexuality, dispelling a lot of the lies and mythology perpetuated by so-called "Christians."


    Rev Crawshaw was born in Woking, in the county of Surrey just to the southwest of London (UK) in 1970  He moved with his parents to Devonshire at age eleven, then ran back to London ASAP at age 21. He went forward for ordination in The Church of England at age 30, and after studying at St Steven's House, Oxford, was ordained in 2002. He served as curate at St Alphage's church, Burnt Oak for 18 months, during which time he began to question the Anglican position on human sexuality and pastoral care.  After much soul searching and a period of extended illness he transferred credentials to MCC in 2006, and has worked as chaplain at Carl Bean House, an HIV hospice in South Central Los Angeles, and interim Pastor of The MCC Church in New Orleans, which he saw grow (with the support and hard work of his partner Leon) from a post Katrina low of 11 members to a thriving congregation of 95 members.  In May 2011 he was called to serve the congregation of MCC of The Coachella Valley as intentional interim Specialist, accompanying the church through a period of intense growth and revival. In March 2013 he was invited to remain at MCCCV as permanent Senior Pastor.  Rev Crawshaw's interests are, theology, art, antiques, the great outdoors and his three dogs, Mardi (Puggle), Precious (Australian shepherd) and Zack (Keeshond).

    "Religion in the LGBT Community" presented by LGBT Real Talk Radio

    in Blogs

    Religion has been a source of both solace and suffering for many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. For while most LGBT Americans have been raised in an organized religion — and many continue to cherish their faith community — too many have been forced to leave those communities behind because of condemnation of LGBT people.


    And yet in recent years, a growing number of organized religious groups in the United States have issued statements officially welcoming LGBT people as members. Many religious organizations also have taken supportive stands on the issues that affect LGBT people in America, such as the fight for freedom from discrimination, the solemnizing of same-sex marriage and the ordination of openly LGBT clergy.


    LGBT Real Talk Radio welcomes the Rev. Valarie Oliver as our special guest for next weeks show on Religion in the LGBT Community. You won't want to miss this very informative show.


    Show date/time: May 5, 2015 at 8:30pm est. You may call in to

    James Richards shares Life Lessons

    in Lifestyle

    James Richards of Intergreet shares his life lessons. 


     James was a successful businessman in New Zealand – built a large corporation with branches in several countries. We were listed on the Stock Exchange. Then on Black Friday, October 1987 my life changed forever. I went from extreme wealth to being broke in a matter of days.


     


    We decided to start over again in USA, so together with my wife and three sons we headed to California to build an even greater business empire.  But God had other plans for us. The incredible experience of being wealthy and suddenly becoming poor, forced me to ask myself this question, “Is life only about making money and owning many possessions?”  When my mind started to open to other possibilities, God started speaking to me and I responded by becoming a follower of Jesus Christ. That was when my real life began. 


    The Church I joined recognized my leadership experience and fast-tracked me to ordination within my denomination, the Reformed Church in America.  I felt led to start planting new churches in South Asia in Muslim countries – we now have 16 congregations.  It has been both very difficult and fruitful. Too many Christians had only a cursory knowledge of the scriptures so we decided to present the Bible in short, easy to understand segments that could be viewed on a Smart Phone, Tablet or TV. So we launched the 10 Minute Bible program. This is a ten minute long video teaching of the Bible.
