For Inquirers/Candidates

The Presbyterian Church (USA) preparation for ministry process involves two phases: Inquiry and Candidacy. These two phases are designed to explore the sense of call, evaluate the gifts necessary for ministry, and support the preparation of men and women who desire to serve as ministers of the Word and Sacrament.
