Resolution 61

The Ministry of the Church - The Supply and Training of Men for Holy Orders

Inasmuch as the ministry is the gift of God through Christ and is essential not only to the being and wellbeing of his Church but also to the extension of his Kingdom; and inasmuch as our Lord taught us to pray for its increase, the Conference expresses the hope that regular and earnest prayer for the ministry may be offered, and teaching about vocation may be given, throughout the whole Church both at the Ember seasons and at other times.

The Conference is convinced not only that it is the duty of the Church to foster vocation to the ministry but that it behoves every clergyman, schoolmaster, parent, and indeed every Christian man and woman to seek out and encourage signs of such vocation.
