We are pleased to introduce two new ministry licenses:
Ministry License – Expedited and
Ministry License – Five-Year Non-Renewable.

You can learn more about these Ministry Licenses on the EFCA website.

Read about the background of these additional options:

Ministry License – Expedited

This license is available to solo and lead pastors who have been in EFCA ministry 10+ years (not necessarily at the same church) and will be offered until November 1, 2022.

Requirements:

  • Letter of intent stating desire for EFCA credential
  • Affirmation of the EFCA Statement of Faith without mental reservation
  • Affirmation of overall alignment with EFCA
  • Elder portion of Policy on Spiritual and Character Qualifications (PSCQ)
  • Minister’s Profile

Ministry License – Five-Year Non-Renewable

This license is available to solo and lead pastors who have been in EFCA ministry less than 10 years. This Ministry License is non-renewable and expires at the end of the fifth year. Once received, the pastor is encouraged to pursue further EFCA credentialing—either the regular (five-year renewable) Ministry License or the Certificate of Ordination.

Requirements:

  • Letter of intent stating desire for EFCA credential
  • Affirmation of the EFCA Statement of Faith without mental reservation
  • Three-page theological and doctrinal paper
  • Affirmation of overall alignment with EFCA
  • Reading of Evangelical Convictions
  • Fulfillment of the Policy on Spiritual and Character Qualifications (PSCQ)
  • Minister’s Profile

As an update, the regular Ministry License is still available. It is called Ministry License – Five-Year Renewable (previously titled the Vocational Ministry License).
