Preparation for Ministry

Forms used in the Preparation for Ministry process



The Office of Preparation for Ministry/Examinations provides a set of forms for use in conjunction with the standard process of preparation for the ministry of the Word and Sacrament. Some of these forms are used to report actions by presbyteries to the Office of the General Assembly (OGA), while others are used with the internal procedures of Committees on Preparation for Ministry (CPM).

Forms that are not used for official reports to the OGA may be customized to meet the particular needs of individual presbyteries’ CPMs. To assist in such customization, those forms are also provided in either Microsoft Word or Excel formats as appropriate. Applicants, Inquirers and Candidates downloading forms from this site should confirm with their respective CPMs whether they may use the PDF files posted here or need to request customized versions from their presbytery.

Because these forms take advantage of new features in Adobe Acrobat, you must use the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Download the newest version.

CPMs who wish to use the Word and Excel versions of the files as the basis for creating customized forms for their presbytery may access those files from the Sample CPM Forms.
