Resolution 85

The Anglican Communion - Training of Ordinands

In the opinion of this Conference, whereas a man is ordained into the ministry of the Church of God and not into that of any one diocese of the Church, it is desirable that the highest possible standard of training should be aimed at throughout the whole body, and to this end we urge a systematic exchange of information relating to:

  1. methods of recruiting, selection, and testing of candidates;
  2. standards of theological and general education required for ordination;
  3. the character of theological institutions and faculties, including methods of support by the Church;
  4. schemes of post-ordination training.
