PCBA Ministerial Standards

The Ministerial Standards Committee of PCBA serves as the committee that relates to Ordinations among member churches, on behalf of the Evergreen Association of American Baptist Churches.

We have recently completed a revision of our Guidelines for Ordination.  You will find them here, along with the Application forms used by Evergreen for Ordination and Recognition.

We hope you will find them useful should the occasion arise in your church.

Our committee meets again on September 6 and November 1 later this year.

Many thanks to all,

Paul Hardwick, Chair
Ministerial Standards Committee
