The Service of Ordination (for temporary pastoral calls or validated non-pastoral ministry positions) and the Service of Ordination & Installation (for installed pastoral calls) should be planned in consultation with the pastor of your congregation, the moderator of Pittsburgh Presbytery, and a member of your Care Team from the Commission on Preparation for Ministry (CPM). The service shall follow the guidelines in the Book of Order, W-4.4001-4002 and the Book of Occasional Services (pages 45-82).
This completed form must be submitted to the CPM and your Care Team at least one week in advance of the CPM meeting. In all cases, the plans are to be approved by the CPM and Pittsburgh Presbytery prior to the service.
Please email Adrien if you have any questions.
