Download EPC Forms

Welcome to the EPC's resource center. On this page you can download a wide variety of commonly used EPC forms, such as those used in approving candidates and calling ministers.  The forms are now available as fillable PDF files unless noted otherwise.  Please notify the General Assembly Office if any corrections are needed.

NOTE: Many of these forms are fillable pdf files and will open in a new browser tab. When the form opens in the browser, right-click the form (or use "Save As" from the menu) and save it to your computer before entering any information, then complete the form. If you complete the form in your browser, your information will not be saved.
