Next Steps


The Ministry Recognition Committee primarily works with those who are exploring a call to accredited Baptist ministry across the EMBA. It is comprised of representatives from the regional team, EMBA ministers, and others who have been appointed by our churches.

The MRC meets twice a year to discuss with candidates what their next steps might be.

If you sense that God might be calling you please speak initially with your minister/church leaders, and then with your Regional Minister. They would be able to offer advice and guidance in the initial stages of exploring a call.

In addition, the EMBA works with the Yorkshire Baptist Association and periodically run explore your call events where we can meet and chat with those who believe that God may be calling them into some form of ministry.
