As you move forward with one of the most exciting events of your ministry experience, my hope is that this important resource can be a benefit to you. The transition from Bible college or seminary graduate, to full-fledged vocational pastor can be daunting. Here are some common questions I get regarding ordination: What is the difference between licensing and ordination? Why should I get ordained or is it really necessary? Who initiates the steps to my ordination? What is the process? Will I ever have to be re-ordained? These are just a few questions that I have addressed over the years.
What matters now is that you are at this important place in your ministry to begin the steps to ordination. Congratulations. We are very excited for you because this process will further acknowledge God’s call on your life for ministry. All of us at CB North Central are happy to assist you as you move forward to make this experience both positive and seamless.
It is my hope that all of the information and resources throughout this manual, will help you through the process with success.
Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions that are not addressed in this manual. We are here to serve you and make your ministry experience rewarding.
