Mission and Ministry Development Reviews
The purpose of a Mission and Ministry Development Review (MMDR) is to give clergy an opportunity to reflect on their ministries, so that they can flourish as disciples and grow in faithfulness and fruitfulness. A consultant-led review takes place every two years and alternates with a biennial visit from a bishop or archdeacon.
MMDR gives an opportunity to look back and reflect on what has happened over the last year or two of ministry and, informed by that, to look forward to plan, anticipate and develop a clearer vision for what lies ahead. In looking back there is an opportunity to acknowledge all there is to be thankful for and anything that is a matter for lament, and in looking forward to anticipate the changing demands of the role, identify future objectives and areas for potential development.
