SFTS - Resource Materials
Welcome to SFTS' resource page for preparing for the Standard Ordination Exams of the PC(USA). Here you will find links to documents from many different sources that have been gathered throughout the years.

We highly recommend that you begin by looking at the information in the General Tips area before moving to information for specific tests. The General Tips information will help undergird preparation work for any of the four exams.

Many blessings as you prepare to write one or more of these exams.
