Licensing School

The Mississippi Conference Board of Ordained Ministry offers Licensing School in conjunction with the Course of Study Extension School at Millsaps College. This format allows those seeking licensing to participate in the community of local pastors and to begin a pattern of theological education essential to effective licensed ministry. Successful completion of all courses is required for licensing as a local pastor. Ideally, participants will participate in all eight weekends over one year. Participants may begin their work toward licensing with any course.
