Pastoral Leadership Support & Development

The Pastoral Leadership Support & Development team’s aim is to support and develop healthy pastoral leaders and empower them to lead their churches in mission.

The team seeks to:
  • Encourage all BUV pastors to have strong support networks so that their ministry is sustainable and life-giving;
  • Encourage all BUV pastors to be engaged in developing their skills and capacities in pastoral leadership;
  • Empower the equipping of pastors for leadership in ways that are missional and contemporary;
  • Provide a ‘first port of call’ for pastors and churches in times of transition and crisis;
  • Provide oversight of Marriage Licences, Professional Development Plans, and the discernment processes of candidates for ordained pastoral leadership.
