Ministry Reference

Applicants are required to submit a Ministry Reference.  The reference should be completed by a pastor, small group leader, missions leader, etc.  Ideally it should be someone that can address your ministry involvement who you have served with/under or alongside. 

It is your responsibility to provide the electronic reference form (  The form can be found at online

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) permits college and seminary students to view materials contained in his/her education record. Letters of reference are discarded upon acceptance to Richmont and are not considered part of the student's record. Because some individuals may be hesitant to write a letter of recommendation if confidentiality is not guaranteed, students may choose to waive the right to view letters of recommendation. Signing such a waiver is not required nor is it a condition of admission to Richmont
