What is a POD?

It is a yearlong adventure in faith which the Uniting Church offers its members to:

  • learn more about themselves, their passions, gifts and character

And through this process to discern where God might be calling them to exercise their gifts in growing the kingdom of God, whether that be:

The Period of Discernment has the following elements to achieve this:

  • ministry experience

    • six months experiencing a wide variety of ministries in the Uniting Church and wider community

    • six months experiencing in-depth one ministry whether that be in church, community or workplace

  • biblical study

    • two subjects through Trinity College Queensland or, if you are discerning a call to ordination the two subjects at bachelor level

  • a discipleship action/reflection course

  • your own journaling

  • mentoring: someone who will travel the journey with you and help you discern where God is leading you.
