Ministry Licensure Requirement
Foundations: Minister’s Development Program has been accepted by the international presbytery of the Church of God of Prophecy as the requirement for ministerial licensure. When a participant completes this program, the state/regional/national overseer will receive a copy of the Certificate of Achievement to verify that a participant has met this requirement. If the participant is pursuing ministry licensure, a notification that the Certificate of Achievement has been awarded will also be sent to the general presbyter of the area.
Note: Completion of this program does not assure ministry licensure. Every person that desires ministry licensure must go through the ministry licensure process as outlined in the Ministry Policy Manual.
Foundations: Minister’s Development Program also provides a pathway to higher ministry education through Spirit & Life Seminary. After completing the program online or onsite with instructors whose credentials are verified through CBL, a participant may request a transfer of nine credit hours from CBL towards completion of the Spirit & Life Seminary Certificate of Ministry and Theological Studies.
