Ministry Development



FPC’s Ministry Development Course (MDC) is comprised of seven sessions that usually meets in the late spring. Watch for registration information online, in the weekly church newsletter or Sunday Worship bulletin.

The MDC provides important information about our Gospel Identity, Spiritual Gifting, ECO Essential Tenets and Polity, Evangelism and FPC’s Strategic Vision.

The course is open to covenant partners in our congregation. It is great preparation for any church role and is also a prerequisite for nomination as an elected church officer. 

Please contact Rev. Brian Stewart to sign up or for more information (565.0922 or

*After completing a meaningful preparation process as determined by the session, those who wish to embrace the congregation’s covenantal expectations may become covenant partners by action of the session after hearing testimony of their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. For those not previously baptized, the Sacrament of Baptism is to be provided for these new covenant partners and offered to children under their care.
