Designed for those who are preparing to serve as Licensed Local Pastors, the Local Pastor Licensing School offers an 80-hour, intensive introduction to the role and tasks of United Methodist Clergy. This is one element of the requirements for licensure as a Local Pastor. The curriculum covers essentials in these areas:
  • United Methodist History, Doctrine, and Theology
  • Worship
  • Preaching
  • Leadership and Administration
  • Spiritual Formation
  • Christian Education
  • Congregational Care
  • Mission, Evangelism, and Church Vitality
Certification as a candidate is preferred, but not required, for participation in the Licensing School of the Rockies. Approval of a District Superintendent is required, as is assignment of a clergy mentor by a DCOM or District Superintendent. 

Classes are in session 8:00 am - 5:00 pm daily with the exception of Sunday, August 7 (students are asked to attend a local UM church that day, and to take a Sabbath day from their studies), and Monday, August 8 which includes evening activities).
