Nebraska Synod Candidacy
Candidacy is a process which allows individuals to graciously discover, through the nurturance of mentors, congregations, and others, how and where to serve according to the Spirit’s leading.
In partnership with the larger church, the candidacy committee is committed to the intentional identification and support of those whom God has given the gift of missional imagination and the ability to provide leadership in the church. The ELCA churchwide candidacy process is a formalized – yet personally and relationally focused – journey that assists people in discernment for church leadership. It is a process of preparation and formation for those seeking to be rostered in the ELCA as ministers in Word and Sacrament or Word and Service.
