Seeking Ordination

If you’re considering applying to become a candidate for ordained ministry or are a member of a presbytery supporting an applicant, you will find everything you need to know here.

To begin, we recommend you have a conversation with the Minister of your congregation. Discerning God’s call involves you as an individual, but it also involves your Minister, your congregation’s church council, your presbytery and Synod.

The presbytery is of particular importance in the application process because it is responsible for caring for the applicant and for overseeing the first two-thirds of the procedure. This builds on the already developed relationship that began during the Period of Discernment that the applicant would have participated in.
