On behalf of the Presbytery of Elizabeth, the Committee on Preparation for Ministry (CPM) oversees all applicants who seek to be ordained as teaching elders. It is the responsibility of the CPM to help the inquirers and candidates discern God’s call to ministry and provide full preparation for that ministry. This is accomplished through CPM’s support, nurture, guidance and evaluation of the person’s fitness and readiness for a call to ministry. Each member of CPM acts as an advisor/committee liaison to an inquirer/candidate while that person is under care of the Presbytery. CPM meets the third Tuesday of each month, three o’clock PM at the Presbytery office.
