Alternate Examination Process

The Presbytery of the Western Reserve requests that the Synod of the Covenant approve the following alternate examination process for meeting the examination requirements of G-14.0310b(4) for ordination to the ministry of Word and Sacrament:

Any candidate who has failed any one of the Standard Ordination Examinations twice may submit a written request to the Committee on Preparation for Ministry (CPM) to take an alternate examination. After consultation with the candidate, the CPM will determine whether the candidate should: 1) be authorized to re-take the Standard Ordination Examination or 2) be recommended to the Presbytery for approval to take an alternate examination.
