Explore Calling

Begin your journey with prayer. God calls everyone into ministry. Talk to your church pastor for help on discovering God’s plan for you. Or if you’re not ready for that conversation yet, check out www.explorecalling.org and explore how to listen for God’s voice, discern what you’ve heard, and respond faithfully.


Are retreats more your style?

If your journey includes ordination

Check out the DSCUMC Board of Ordained Ministry.


Want to start a new community of faith?

  1. Talk with your church pastor about this.
  2. Grants and loan information is available at www.umc.org.

If you’re already a pastor

Contact the Dean of the Cabinet or write to the bishop to talk about:

  • Transferring membership to the Desert Southwest Conference from another Conference or denomination.
  • Requesting a new appointment during retirement in the Desert Southwest Conference.
