While all Christians are called to serve in ministry, some are called to a specific type of ministry within the United Methodist Church. Those who feel called to vocational ministry may explore the clergy roles of deacons, elders, and licensed local pastors. In the UMC, candidates for ministry explore their call through conversations with their pastors, district superintendent, and ultimately, by attending a Candidacy Summit.
