The Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership forms ministers and leaders for service in the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand and partner churches.

We work in partnership with a variety of groups and networks, including Te Aka Puaho, the Pacific Island Synod, the Council of Asian Congregations, Presbyteries, United District Councils, and congregations.

In addition to training people for National Ordained Ministry, the Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership also provides training for Local Ordained MinistersLocal Ministry Teams and other recognised ministries in the Church. We support presbyteries and congregations in their leadership development, and help resource continuing ministry formation among the Presbyterian Church’s ministers and elders.

KCML Snapshots Lent-inar (2018)

During Lent 2018, KCML offered (free) web-inars.  Weekly, two of the contributors to Snapshots in Mission were interviewed via online video conferencing.  What sparked their writing? What piece of music speaks to their article? What are the implications, for church, ministry and mission?
