The purpose of a ministerial credential is to:

  • affirm God’s call upon a person’s life
  • verify that this person meets the qualifications and standards for ministry in the Evangelical Free Church of America
  • approve this person for ministerial service under the auspices of the EFCA
  • provide legal status in the exercise of that person’s ministry

There are four types of credentials in the EFCA:

  • Ministry License (Vocational and Non-Vocational)
  • Certificate of Christian Ministry
  • Certificate of Ordination
  • Transfer of Ordination
