We want to develop and maintain strong relationships with our pastoral leaders throughout CBOQ.  To that end, we provide a system by which pastors are connected for support and accountability to others within our family of churches.  Accreditation, supervision and ordination all encourage our leaders to excellence and effectiveness in ministry.  These processes are administered through our Department of Leadership Development.

Ministry Information Profile


For all of the pastoral leaders who are becoming newly credentialed with us at level 2 or 3, we require a period of supervision from an experienced minister. For the details, see the Accreditation Manual (Blue Book).

If you are serving as a supervisor for this process, there are suggestions for approaches in our Supervisor’s Manual.

For more information, or for print copies of these resources, contact Sheila Dyck (sdyck@baptist.ca or 416-620-2933).
