All provisional members are required to meet with the Committee on Preparation and Qualifications annually in a brief personal consultation. The Committee will utilize the candidate’s paperwork submitted to P&Q from the Residency Committee.

If the provisional member is not in Residency, they should submit a one-page summary of their current place in ministry and their plans for ordination to the Chair of P&Q. Candidates should be prepared to discuss the material submitted. Each provisional member will meet with a sub-committee of P&Q for Continuing Consultations.
