Dates of existence



The Division grew out of the Board of Colleges and an expanded vision of vocation in the church, and was established in 1971 to serve the personnel, educational and vocational needs of the Church. Of particular interest to the Division was the role of pastoral work, chaplaincy in institutions, continuing education for clergy and lay supplies, theological education, recruitment, summer supplies, and special training programmes.

Under the major reorganization of General Council units in 2001, the mandate of the Division of Ministry Personnel and Education was moved to two units: Faith Formation and Education (FFE) and Ministry and Employment Policy and Services (MEPS).
