Materials For Advisors
The advisor is the key to the effective work of the Committee on Preparation for Ministry. Each advisor should see his or her task as both shepherding and gate-keeping. The advisor is the continuing liaison with the individual Inquirers and Candidates. The primary tasks of the advisor are to explain the process, to act as a contact person, and to serve as an advocate for the advisee. The advisor also communicates the committee's concerns to the advisee, and when appropriate, to the home church pastor and the elder liaison.
