Form 1C “Financial Planning for Theological Education”
Using basic information provided by the applicant, this spreadsheet automatically generates a projection of the applicant’s financial resources and needs relative to the required seminary training.
Form 1D “Session Evaluation and Recommendation”
This form is completed by the applicant’s session and forwarded along with the other application forms to the presbytery’s committee/commission overseeing preparation for ministry. The form includes questions that may guide the session’s discussion with the applicant and provide support for its recommendation to the committee/commission overseeing preparation for ministry.
