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 Church Life and Leadership Development.

New CBOQ Pastors' Orientation

Annually the CBOQ offers an orientation for all those who are new to our family of churches, be they new pastors fresh out of seminary or seasoned pastors who have never been accredited by CBOQ.

Emerging Leaders

Do you know an emerging leader?

Do you sense a calling to ministry?

Download some suggestions to help you discern and contact Marc Potvin, Pastoral Leaders Development Associate for guidance.


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.

If you are serving as a supervisor for this process, there are suggestions for approaches in our Supervision Guide.
