The process of Privilege of Call (PoC) is designed for an ordained minister who desires to leave their denomination they were ordained in and become an Ordained Minister in the United Church of Christ. The Privilege of Call discernment process applies to candidates who belong to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), The United Church of Canada, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Reformed Church in America, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, or other ecclesial organizations whose ministerial formation process is similar to the United Church of Christ.
The policies and practices for Privilege of Call candidates are specific to each association and/or conference. Click on the documents specific to your conference and association below to learn more about the POC process and to access necessary documents throughout the process.
