What does Dylan need to do to become a pastor in the ELCA?

Dylan has a number of different options as he works towards ordination. He already holds a Master’s degree in religion and this gives him a good start in the process. He will need to work with one of the Lutheran seminaries as well as the Candidacy Committee of the Southeast Michigan Synod to determine which path makes the most sense for him. Dylan will keep the congregation informed as he gets clarity around this question.
