Procedure Instructions for a Candidate for Ministry
Welcome to our Center. Please carefully read all the information on this page. We look forward to working with you as you complete this process as part of your preparation for ministry. There are three parts:
1. Fill out the Registration Form, four autobiographical forms and three Releases of Information listed below. We recommend that you do it in the Word Format and attach it to an email to our Center or print them out and send by mail. The Releases of Information will have to be printed out, signed, and mailed to us.
2. After step one is completed, call our Center to schedule your evaluation appointment. It is a three hour appointment and can be scheduled in a morning or afternoon slot. At this time you will be asked when you would like to complete the three inventories. One is done online (instructions will be emailed or sent to you) and can be completed on your own time, the remaining two need to be completed at our Center or with a “Proctor” (pastor, church secretary, teacher, counselor, etc.). It will take you approximately two hours to complete these two inventories. All materials listed above including the autobiographical forms, releases and inventories need to be completed and into our Center one week prior to your evaluation appointment.
3. Evaluation at our Center on your appointed date. A report based on your evaluation interview, written materials and inventories will be generated by your counselor and sent to the requested party with a copy to you within approximately three weeks from the time of your evaluation.
To fill out and submit a form on the web, click the link corresponding to the form's name.
To download a printable form to send in via mail or as an attachment to an email, click on the Word icon (for a Word document) or the Adobe icon (for a PDF document) next to the form.
A word of caution: if you are unable to finish the online form in one sitting, just saving the web page won't capture the text you have written, so you will have to copy and paste your answers into a document to save. It might be best to write up answers in a document to begin with, then copy and paste them over once every question has been answered.
If you do not get a confirmation page after submitting the form, press back on the browser button, and the information should still all be there. At this point, you might want to copy your answers into another document if you haven't done so already, then try submitting again later. If it still doesn't work, you way want to email this document to . This shouldn't happen, but on the rare occurrence that a server goes down, it's good to be on the safe side.
