Ministerial Development Review

Ministerial Development Review title on a green background.

Ministerial Development Review (MDR) is a development review process that supports ministers both to grow in their ministry and to contribute to circuits and districts in their mission. It does so by providing a framework for ministers to engage in reflective practice in the context of their current appointment and by enabling and encouraging discussion, development and growth.

Ministerial Development Review applies to all ministers (deacons and presbyters) in a circuit appointment or district appointment, and to all district chairs. It also applies to every minister who has entered into an agreement with a circuit to undertake pastoral responsibility in one or more local church.
