The Service of Reception should be planned in consultation with the pastor of your congregation, the moderator of Pittsburgh Presbytery, and a member of your Care Team from the Commission on Preparation for Ministry (CPM). The service shall follow the guidelines in the Book of Order.
This completed form must be submitted to the CPM and your Care Team at least one week in advance of the CPM meeting. In all cases, the plans are to be approved by the CPM and Pittsburgh Presbytery prior to the service.
Please email Cindy Miller if you have any questions.
