Leinbach and Al. M. Hendee of Kansas City congregation came forward and gave each a relation of his experimental acquaintance with religion, and Bros. Green and Leinbach of their internal call to the work of the ministry."

"Bros. Green and Leinbach were received under the care of the Lexington Presbytery as candidates for the ministry and I John 4:16 was assigned to Bro. Green and Rom. 14:17 to Bro. Leinbach as texts upon which to write discourses to be read at the next meeting of the Presbytery."

"The committee on examination, presented the following report:
... There were present before the committee for examination, Probationers J. C. Worley, Samuel U. Leinbach and Jesse C. Engle. J. T. Hood, a candidate under the care of New Lebanon Presbytery, was present and took part in the examination. Bro. Albert W. Green came in during the examination.
As all the probationers before the committee, except Bro. Engle, are attending school at Missouri Valley College, the committee deemed best to spend the entire time of the examination on Theology. Some of the brethren showed a commendable degree of proficiency, yet all of them need to give this part of their preparation for the gospel ministry special attention. No amount of literary training can take the place of a knowledge of God's word. We urge, therefore, that your probationers give earnest heed to the Bible, the Confession of Faith and Catechism and systematized Theology. We recommend that all your probationers who are now in school, continue so as far as practicable. We recommend that your probationers, after they have finished their literary course, take a full course in our Theological school."

The committee on Examination met in Kansas City, March 30, 1897, at 1 o'clock p.m. and examined Licentiate S. U. Leinbach on those subjects on which he had not been previously examined.
We recommend that the Presbytery proceed to ordain him to the whole work of the ministry during the present session, and that he preach a trial sermon tomorrow at 11 a.m., and that the ordination service take place tomorrow at 8 o'clock p.m., Rev. J. H. Tharp to preach the sermon, and J. W. Duvall preside and give the charge.

SERMON.--At 11 o'clock a.m. Licentiate S. U. Leinbach delivered a trial discourse preparatory to ordination, from II Cor.3:1-3, after which he was examined on his experimental acquaintance with religion and his internal call to the work of the ministry.
All the parts of trial were sustained as popular preparatory to ordination.

EVENING SESSION. Thursday, April 1, 8 o'clock P.M.
The special order was taken up, and, after an ordination sermon preached by Rev. J. H. Tharp from Luke 4:32, Licentiate Samuel U. Leinbach was, by the imposition of hands and prayer, set apart to the whole work of the gospel ministry, Rev. J. W. Duvall presiding, after which, the newly ordained minister was recognized as a member of Presbytery, and his name was placed upon the roll.
