Credentialing of lead pastors, staff
ministers, theological students, and lay ministers is a function
of our denominational Office of the Ordered Ministry in partnership
with the Superintendent and the Conference Committee on Ministerial
Standing elected by the Conference Ministerium. Visit the
of the Ordered Ministry link on the Covenant's web-site
for a complete description of the types of licenses available
and general requirements. An orientation program is available
through our denominational office for persons interested in
pursuing ministry within The Evangelical Covenant Church.
Information regarding this orientation program is also available
on the Covenant web-site, covchurch.org.
