Core competencies for EMR

Extended Ministerial Review (EMR) is a system of review based on Core Competencies, with organised feedback.

What are Core Competencies?

Core Competencies aim to define a role by identifying its constituent skills and knowledge areas.

Competencies are:

  • a language of performance combining knowledge, skill and attitude
  • specific to context, reflecting values, ministry and mission
  • relevant to role – content and importance
  • easy to understand and to use in a review situation
  • descriptive not prescriptive
  • top level statements with examples to illustrate competency at different levels (e.g. learning, developing, maturing, accomplished, expert)

Competencies are not a measure of competence or incompetence, nor are they a tool for comparison or the introduction of league tables!

For Extended Ministerial Review twelve Core Competencies have been developed, which are not designed to be exclusive or comprehensive:

  1. Leadership
  2. Working collaboratively
  3. Communications
  4. Parish management and organisation
  5. Outreach
  6. Worship
  7. Preaching
  8. Teaching
  9. Pastoral Care
  10. Self management
  11. Personal Development
  12. Spirituality
