The purpose of a Mission and Ministry Development Review (MMDR) is to give Readers 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 three years. Often the Reviewer will be the Deanery Adviser.
MMDR gives an opportunity to look back and reflect on what has happened over the last several years 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 changing demands, identify future objectives and areas for potential development.

Readers will be invited to take part in MMDR by the Lay Ministry Officer. MMDR documents and forms are also available here – Handbook Review Form and SoA Pro-Forma Description 2019 and SoA Pro-Forma Form.
Please note the MMDR Forms must be typed and submitted electronically.
