  1. Copies of transcripts from all higher education institutions (must be from a regionally accredited school). During preliminary interviews, we may photocopy these transcripts. However, as your candidacy formalizes, we'll need official transcripts.

  3. A written expression of your philosophy of Christian Higher Education.

Additionally, for candidates applying for Church Ministries positions: 1.) an audio recording of an average sermon or classroom presentation, and 2.) a statement from the district secretary confirming your credential is in good standing if you are a credentialed minister.
