Ministry Training

The Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre Ministry Program trains Indigenous community leaders in helping and healing capacities. We also train people for Indigenous leadership roles in The United Church of Canada and other churches. Students in our program may become eligible for Ordination, Commissioning to Diaconal Ministry or recognition as Designated Lay Ministers within The United Church of Canada. Our Community Based Model balances field work in the community with two-week Learning Circles four times a year at the Centre. We affirm a style of leadership appropriate to Indigenous cultures and the Indigenous church experience. Our training program is ever evolving to meet the evolving contexts of our communities.
