Pre-Ordination Licensing as a Step Toward Ordination

1. A person planning to become an ordained minister shall first secure a pre-ordination license from the church of which he/she is a member. To obtain such a license, the Candidate shall:  
• Be a person who has accepted Jesus the Christ as Lord and Savior;
• Be a stable person of good reputation; and
• Be preparing for the Christian ministry as a professional vocation.
2. The Candidate’s church shall counsel with the Candidate regarding the Christian ministry, and shall provide an opportunity for the Candidate to preach and/or conduct public worship. After favorable action by the church, a suitable pre-ordination license shall be presented to the Candidate.

3. This license shall be validated annually by the Church.

4. This license is typically valid for one (1) years from the date of issue unless revoked by the Sovereign Council and shall authorize the licensee to perform ministerial and healing duties as defined by the church in accordance with the laws of the state.

Licensing moves the Candidate toward ordination with further training. Ordination is appropriate not only for local church pastor, but also for missionaries, seminary and Christian college teachers, military and institutional chaplains, pastoral counselors, music ministers, and Christian education directors, etc.

Note:  The church determines the appropriate committee or board to interview the Candidate, review the Candidate’s gifts and experiences, theology and call to ministry. Generally, the board or committee who interviews the Candidate makes the recommendation to the church that gives the approval (by vote and/or acclamation.) One of the best times for this to take place would be during a Sunday worship service.
