In the Church of the Nazarene, we believe that all Christ-followers are called to minister. We also affirm that Christ calls some to specific and public pastoral ministry, much as Jesus chose 12 disciples to follow him in that particular way.
On the Intermountain District, individuals who are in the process of discerning and following this call are called Ministers in Development (MIDs). As part of this process, eleven MIDs attended an event called MIdpoint Assessment, which was held at Trinity Pines. Those days together included times of spiritual inspiration, informal connection, and conversations about spiritual formation, doctrinal understanding, strengths, and personal growth.
