Clergy in the Diocese of Milwaukee
Maintaining close connections with a clergy community numbering nearly 200 and spread across southern Wisconsin is a primary concern for the bishop. Personal interaction is achieved through frequent clergy days and congregational visits. Communication tools such as the weekly E-News email newsletter, a monthly news bulletin for the clergy, the clergy Facebook group and the bishop’s blog further enhance this sense of shared purpose and identity.
Developing and advancing gifted pastoral leaders is another key priority for the bishop. Among the resources available to clergy are the Church Development Institute, Fresh Start for clergy entering new calls and ministry, and continuing education opportunities.
Clergy in the diocese should also be familiar with and adhere to the Policies and Procedures that protect them and their congregations.
