An important component of the ADCMT is specific experience gained in working in parishes during the course. Intensives also allow opportunities for group involvement in Intentional Pastoral Practice, the sharing of resources, ideas and practice, the leading of worship and hands-on workshops covering practical issues such as discipling, mission, managing change, church governance, preaching, spiritual development, and dealing with stress.
This course is a requirement for the Ordained Ministry in a number of Anglican Dioceses for both a Deacon and a Priest. It is also evidence of relevant training and experience for all Anglican Dioceses. Please note, however, that the final decision about ordination rests with Diocesan Bishops and their advisors.
