If you are a candidate or applicant for preparation for ordained or lay ministry and have received a letter of authorization from your judicatory or denomination to complete a psychological fitness review with Clergy Assessment Service, or CAS, you are in the right place.

We invite you to look at Assessing Psychological Fitness for Ministry and FAQs to familiarize yourself with the process and purpose.

Briefly, we see the assessment process as a consultation – an opportunity for you to grow in self-awareness, claim your strengths for ministry, become conscious of your limitations and explore with your judicatory those areas that could benefit from further nurture and development prior to your entrance into professional ministry.

Our goal is that you will feel understood at the end of the process and that you will feel life is hopeful, so you can fully recognize your place in the larger institutional, societal and universal order.
