The Candidacy Summit is an event for considering or admitted candidates for ministry in the Virginia Conference of The United Methodist Church (VAUMC). You must be a high school graduate, and 18-years of age, to participate. The purpose of the Candidacy Summit is to provide opportunities for vocational discernment, connection with others who are exploring God's call in their lives, and deeper understanding about the VAUMC journey towards certified, licensed and ordained ministry.

Two Candidacy Summits are offered each year, one in July and one in January, and participation in one Candidacy Summit is required before one can become a certified candidate for ministry in the VAUMC. This professional development event begins at 10:30am on Friday morning. Discussion continues around the table during meals and activities run into the early evening.The Summit concludes with worship and lunch served at 12:30pm on Saturday.
