Churches/Ministries are provided with documentation for needed purposes.
CHRISTIAN WORKERS LICENSE: For practical local ministers not necessarily working in a pulpit, but needing accountability, connectivity and authenticity. IE: Youth Worker, nursing home or hospital visitation ministry or jail ministry.
LOCAL LICENSE: This is a minister-in-training license. Allows the minister accountability and covering while learning.
GENERAL LICENSE: Allows the holder to perform weddings, funeral, serve sacraments. Licenses from equivalence from a previous organization can be transferred at same levels. License of equivalence will transfer.
FULL ORDINATION: Carries full priviledges and rights as well as the ability to hold office within the organization. Must have held General License for a minimum of 1 year.
Each level of licensing requires annual dues of $150 payable at General Conference or $15 per month on a re-occurring auto-payment. A prescribed annual continuing education program is required to maintain licensing. All new applicants must complete a prescribed education course. Ministers enrolled in our accredited seminary university program are not required to fulfill the continuing education program as their active degree program will serve that purpose.
