Ministry Licensing for Ohio | West Virginia Region of the Church of God of Prophecy

Ministry Licensing Process


The ministry is a high and holy calling and should be considered carefully, seriously, and prayerfully.  A deep reverence and sincerity toward God should always be the priority of the license applicant. It is God, and not the church, who calls the individual into ministry service. Therefore, the applicant’s primary allegiance and commitment is to God. 


The Church of God of Prophecy has some fundamental requirements for applicants who desire ministry credentials and ordination. God’s work does not operate in a vacuum, but in the real world where practical, civil duties are required, as well as spiritual. 

To begin the licensing process, first consult with your pastor or the Regional Bishop.  Below are the processes for each respective licensing types in the Church of God of Prophecy.
