Board of Ordained Ministry

...and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 'Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?' He said to him, ''You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.'  - Matthew 22: 35-40

These two great commandments remind us that we love God, and then we love our neighbor and ourselves. The purpose to this web page is to help you explore some options for loving your neighbor. In other words, it is designed to give you information about ministry options in The United Methodist Church in Iowa.
