I am in the middle of a research project on denominational processes leading to ordination and am exploring these questions: Are the processes leading to ordained ministry reflecting and helping to further the kind of pastoral leadership needed in churches today. Are some denominational processes hindering the recruitment of young candidates for ministry. How might denominational processes leading to ordination be redesigned ?

I'm a United Methodists clergyperson and theological school professor who has been very involved in efforts to change the UM process. In conversation with young United Methodist clergy, I've become convinced that our UM process is deeply flawed.

I would like to coorespond or talk by telephone with some young Epsicopal priests about the Epsicopal process. Anyone out there willing to talk about this? Do you have any suggestions about who I might contact?

Thanks very much.
