Application

On this page you will find three ways to initiate the Application Process - electronically, by postal mail/fax and a hybrid of these two. Please read each option carefully before deciding which method works best for you and beginning the application. Once you have chosen a method, click on the link to begin the Application Process.

With all three methods, you will need to complete all forms, as well as provide 2 recent photos, copies of transcripts and ordination certificate (if applicable), and either a $100 application/background investigation fee or proof of a current criminal background check.

PLEASE NOTE: If you need a copy of your DD-214, and do not have it readily available, the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for Veterans to gain access to their DD-214 online: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/
We require copies of DD-214s of all veterans as part of the application process.
