Important Information


Acceptance into MTN involves an interview of both Trainer and Trainee held, in most instances, in October or November at a suitable location. You will be advised of these details.


The minimum stipend for MTN Trainees is determined from time to time by the Stipends Commission of the Presbyterian Church of Queensland. Some churches elect to pay the whole stipend whilst other churches can only support the trainee with assistance from funds set aside by the Presbyterian Church of Queensland. The maximum assistance available for each trainee from the fund in 2020 is $15,000 per annum. Subsidy funds are limited and the current policy applies subsidy only to full-time trainees. To aid your training congregation's budgeting, as much as possible, we will make any subsidy offered for the second year consistent with that offered in the first year.

When will you know?

The Committee on Ministry Resourcing will endeavour to let you know the result of your application by mid November, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Your Answers

Please fill in your answers below under each relevant question, giving a reasonable amount of detail as appropriate.
The Committee on Ministry Resourcing may withdraw funding at any time if the Trainer or the Trainee fail to meet the requirements of the Ministry Traineeship (e.g. non-attendance at Training Days, failing to provide reports, etc).
