Debt does not prevent an application to the seminary, but we cannot ordain someone with a large debt. We ask that the issue be resolved in some manner prior to entering the Seminary. Some men find family members or other benefactors to help them and other aspirants work until they can pay the debt. There are other solutions as well. Those men with a serious level of debt should consult us on an individual basis. Again, the important factor to note is that your debt must be resolved in one way or another before you can enter.
