|Every candidate for lay diaconal or ordained ministry in the ELCIC is approved by a specific Synod Council but must be qualified for service throughout the ELCIC. Candidates are considered for service according to national standards and by means of common procedures.
This church values a consistent candidacy process and acceptance by any one synod council entails approval for ministry throughout the ELCIC. The national standards and procedures have been developed through years of experience by national boards and working groups and in consultation with leaders in the synodical candidacy process and Canadian Lutheran theological education.
