Presbyterian ministers are chosen by the church’s presbytery.

Recommended Posts

In the PCUSA (Presbyterian Church U.S.A.), Presbyterian ministers, or teaching elders, must be members of a church and have been active in that church for at least six months before applying for candidacy. A presbytery helps determine the candidate’s specific ministry. After that, an inquiry period follows where the session and presbytery committee discuss the candidate’s request. When the presbytery agrees for ordination, the candidate can then undergo the next phase of preparation under the presbytery’s oversight committee.

Candidates must have a college undergraduate degree and a seminary degree. Candidates must also pass national exams on theology and other church topics. Finally, the presbytery can ordain him as a teaching elder.

The PCUSA allows for ordination of men and women. Meanwhile, the PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) only ordains men.
