Credential Process Overview

The Assemblies of God gives recognition to the following classifications of ministry:

Certified Minister:
Efficient helpers in gospel work who devote a part of their time to Christian service and where there is a need for this credential to accomplish ministry.

License to Preach:
Those who give clear evidence of a Divine call and whose desire is to devote their lives to preaching the gospel.

Ordained Minister:
Those who give proof of their call and whose mature ministry qualifies them for a wide range of leadership responsibilities in the full-time ministry. Applicants must be at least 23 years of age, be in full-time ministry and have held a License to Preach for two consecutive years.

Local Church Credential:
At the 2003 General Council, provision was made for the granting of a local church credential. The local church credential shall be non-transferable (limited to the issuing local church) and shall be limited to 2 years. A person holding a local church credential can perform the ordinances and ceremonies (sacerdotal functions) of the church if authorized in writing by the senior pastor of the local church issuing the credential. Contact the office of the IDC Executive Secretary for information.

More information on the Credential Process (including requirements, fees, required studies, etc.) available in the Credentials Brochure found in Recommended Resources.
