Credentials Calendar

Please note the following important dates on the Credentials Board Calendar to ensure that your credentialing process adheres to the District schedule of events:

A special note for all NEW license candidates - if your salvation or call to ministry testimony includes a divorce or a felony, then a process of removing a barrier for licensing and ordination is a part of the process and requires additional paperwork and a meeting with the full board of credentials that happens only at the Richmond meeting.

A special note for all Ordination candidates - additional paperwork and a meeting with the full credentials board is necessary, and this meeting occurs only in Richmond.
