Where do pastors start?

Resources for Pastors

When people of faith believe they have received a call to pastor a church in the PC(USA), the Presbyterian Church has processes in place to work with you and your congregation to prepare you for this work in the church. There are two ways that people called to ministry can minister in the PC(U.S.A.).

The most common way to become a pastor in the PC(U.S.A.) is to pursue ordination to the position of Minister of Word and Sacrament. The process is outlined on the Becoming a Minister page. Typically these candidates will study in a seminary while maintaining membership in a local church.

A Commissioned Pastor is a ruling elder of a Presbyterian Church and is active in the life and ministry of his or her local church. This person responds to a call to enter ministry and works with a local congregation to see if this unique role is suited to their situation. More information about this process is oulined on our Becoming a Commissioned Pastor page.
