Worker Resources


The documents here are intended to guide ordained workers through the call process. Please contact the President’s Office if you have any questions that aren’t answered here.


If you need to update your PIF (Pastor Information Form) or SET (Self Evaluation Tool), your first step is to contact Tami in the President’s Office. You can find more details about the process in the document below.
