All enquirers are strongly encouraged to contact the Director of Pastoral Services to talk about their individual situation and to discuss options for potential registration. After a review of initial criteria, the applicant will be invited into an application process which will include such things as:

  • Initial interviews with the Director of Pastoral Services
  • A Learning Plan
  • A Church Endorsement
  • Application forms (for the Applicant & Spouse)
  • A Compliance Form
  • A Confidential Interview
  • A Psychologist Assessment
  • Proof of a current Blue Card
  • Church Leadership Report
  • Referee Reports
  • Questionnaire on beliefs
  • Medical History Form
  • A final interview with Ministerial Services.

Following registration approval, newly registered pastors enter a period of ministry supervision for 2 years as a Registered Minister – Supervised. Upon successfully completing this program, they will be registered for an initial period of 3 years upon completion of a Personal Ministry Development Plan (PMDP).
