Formation for Church Leadership

All of EDS’s programs are open to students from all faith traditions; Episcopal postulancy or plans for ordination in another denomination are not requirements for any program.

Applicants seeking Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church should be in communication with their rector, bishop, or diocesan Commission on Ministry concerning their interest in ordination and in beginning a program of theological education. Applicants in other denominations seeking to be ordained are encouraged to be in communication with their pastor, minister, or those who oversee the ordination process in their denomination.
