At the May 2023 Presbytery Meeting, the Commission on Preparation for Ministry proposed a new process for receiving and examining candidates who are certified ready pending call, and this process was adopted by the body. The process stipulates that before a Presbytery meeting, a gathering hosted by the CPM shall be held to examine candidates for ordination. (If you want to review the full proposal and rationale, you can find it here on Pg. 14). In September, three individuals are scheduled to be approved for ordination, pending call. On Wednesday, September 20th, at 4 p.m., the Commission will host the Final Discernment Event to gather and hear from these individuals. All eligible commissioners are welcome and encouraged to attend; registration is required. A draft agenda is available here.
