Candidates

Open the candidates booklet as a PDF.

The following candidates for ministry in the Christian Reformed Church are declared eligible for call (however, those marked with an asterisk have not completed all candidacy requirements. They may be interviewed but may not accept a call until they complete their requirements). All announced calls are, of course, contingent upon completion of a classis exam as stipulated in Church order Article 10.

Churches and ministries seeking to extend a call to a candidate are advised to determine visa status relative to country of citizenship and country of service. More complete profiles may be obtained by search committees by emailing Pastor Church Resources.

Candidates who need to submit changes for this page may email them to Jill Stark.
