The Commission on Ministry engages in research and discussion on the calling to Christian ministry and the ways in which this vocation can be effectively discharged by Baptists in contemporary society. The Commission investigates the ways in which oversight is exercised in Baptist churches at the local, regional and universal levels. It makes its insights available to the wider Baptist family.
