CMD focuses not just on learning and training but takes seriously the flourishing of the whole person in their ministerial context. It cannot seek to meet all the individual needs of everyone but aims to create a normative environment in which developmental learning is recognized as a hallmark of professional good practice as well as a central aspect of discipleship. It is also a means by which we exercise grateful stewardship of the talents which God has entrusted to us, both as individuals and as the Church. Learning and development is interpreted in broad terms. As well as training courses, theological programmes or conferences, applications will also be considered for activities such as retreats, mentoring or accessing work consultancy or coaching.
As well as the CMD Grant, there also a number of trust funds which can be applied for – see Grant Making Trusts.
