Endorsement of an individual as a credentialed minister takes serious consideration. Experience, Biblical knowledge and maturity are expected of the candidate seeking this title. The process of applying to receive ministerial credentials is not complicated but we do take it seriously.

Not everyone is at the experience, Biblical knowledge and maturity level of an ordained minister, and that is why we offer several options for ministry recognition designed to help people grow into full ordination status. We are confident one of these options will fit you, empowering you to develop as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Below are the steps you will take to apply for ministerial credentials. Should you find them confusing at any time, don’t hesitate to call or email us and we will be glad to personally walk you through the process.

STEP 1: Learn About Us

It is important that you understand the mission, purpose, core values, by-laws and policies of Elim Fellowship. Though the reading may seem dry, you wouldn’t want to be a part of a group with which you didn’t have a proper understanding and agreement.

STEP 2: Choose Your Option

The next step includes deciding what level of credential best fits your current level of experience, situation, Biblical knowledge and maturity.

STEP 3: Apply Online

Your third step is to apply online. The online application process will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. You will be asked to pay the application fee at the same time.
