Like all readers in the Diocese, Jack was interviewed and selected for this ministry and then undertook a course of study consisting of 6 modules, delivered through St John's College, Nottingham. The course of study, which includes practical training in liturgics and preaching, normally lasts from 2 to 3 years.
At the Sunday Eucharist in St Paul's Athens, which concluded the Archdeaconry Synod, members of the congregation were able to greet Jack, and wish him well in his Reader ministry.
