The Department of Clergy Development exists to assist ministers to live out God's design for their life and ministry. Several steps help pastors achieve this goal in the IPHC:

Completing the credentialing process | Discovering and developing the pastor’s gifts and skills

Caring for pastors in the seasons of ministry  |  Assisting pastors to finish well

Other Development Opportunities

The IPHC administers two programs funded by the Lilly Endowment: Thriving in the Seasons of Pastoral Ministry and Financial Health and Help for Pastors. Discover more about these programs.

In addition to overseeing the credentialing process, conference Schools of Ministry provide opportunities for continuing education through conference seminars, mentoring, and annual training. Find your conference.
