Provisional Leadership Academy (PLA)
The provisional member's ministry during the residency period establishes lifelong patterns.  This is a time when excellence in ministry is modeled and nurtured by clergy mentors, teachers, and supervisors.  The expectation is that patterns of excellence fostered through mentoring, continuing theological education, covenant groups, and supervision will yield effectiveness in ministry.  Additional information on each of these areas can be found in the Provisional Leadership Academy Guide, prepared by the Board of Ordained Ministry.
For more information regarding the PLA, please contact Committee Co-Chair Steve Garnass-Holmes (
