Denominational Processes (Candidacy)
For persons preparing for servant-leadership in the church, most denominations have a candidacy process that requires contact with the denomination prior to the beginning of seminary. Since the process varies, all persons applying to a seminary should clarify the denomination's candidacy expectations prior to beginning theological studies.
Consistent with your denominational polity, contact you local synod (Lutheran), diocese (Episcopalian), conference (Methodist), etc.
