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.
Stated clerks now make all reports to the Office of the General Assembly using either Form 7A (to receive a person under care or advance them in the process) or Form 7B (to end the care relationship because the person has withdrawn, been removed, been transferred, or been ordained).
Stated Clerk used to send a Form 2A to OGA. I understand they don't anymore?
In the current configuration of forms under the 2011/2013 Book of Order, the only forms forwarded to the Office of the General Assembly are Forms 7A and 7B. Stated Clerks may send those either to Janie Burton or to me (my email is available through the link at the left).
Is it still Janie Burton we send forms to? Suggest you put that info, with address, here.
