Welcome to the MDC

Helping Leaders Fit & Flourish

The Ministerial Development Community (MDC) assists the Evangelical Congregational Church to provide qualified leaders for ministry in our various contexts in order to engage the world and accomplish the mission that God has for his followers in the 21st century.


Take some time to explore the MDC website. Our purpose is to help you press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of you. We answer several frequently asked questions about how to find ministry opportunities within the Evangelical Congregational Church.

If you desire to understand your next steps toward formal ministry with us, I will be glad to meet with you to answer questions about your specific situation. Please contact me at [email protected].
