Erin Tyler’s Ordination to Christian Ministry
Erin recently graduated with her Master of Divinity from Claremont School of Theology as part of the inaugural class at their branch campus in Salem, OR. She was presented with the Disciples Seminary Foundation Award, which is given to a student who exemplifies DSF’s values of innovation, collaboration, and integrity in ministry with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Erin has served as our Children’s Ministry Coordinator for over a decade, and she was commissioned in April 2021 by the Central Rocky Mountain Region as our Children’s Minister. At the end of May, the CRMR Committee on Ministry approved Erin for ordination. We are thrilled to celebrate this special day for her and Christ’s Church with all you in a service of worship on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at 2 p.m. in our sanctuary. A reception will follow.
Rev. Belva Brown Jordan, Interim Executive Director of Disciples Seminary Foundation and Erin’s advisor, will be the guest preacher. Rev. Brown Jordan also serves as Associate Professor of the Practice of Ministry at Claremont.
