Your candidacy journey begins when you contact your synod office (by using the widget on the right hand side to search for synod email). At the synod office, you will be directed to the person/s who can talk to you about your discernment journey and the candidacy process, what forms are necessary and how to complete them.

"A list of all of the required candidate forms is available in the candidacy resource page."

Download our Frequently Asked Questions list for further information.

If you have any questions please contact Sandra Mejia-Vega, Associate Program Director for Candidacy.
