Train to Join the Team

Joining a well-established team is essential to being successful in ministry.  Here at the New Mexico Ministry Network, we want to partner with you in that process. Below are outlined some of the ways to begin your journey toward credentials: 

 

 

Educational Requirements for Credentials

 

 

Ministerial Studies Program

Upon completion of the Ministerial Studies courses, you will have met the minimum academic requirements to apply for credentials.  Successful completion of these courses should prepare you for credentialing interviews and tests.

 

 

 

New Mexico School Of Ministry (NMSOM)

Upon completion of the Ministerial Studies courses, you will have met the minimum academic requirements to apply for credentials.  Successful completion of these courses should prepare you for credentialing interviews and tests.

 

DISCLAIMER

Courses completed through the New Mexico District School of Ministry that are required by the Assemblies of God for credentials meet the educational requirements of the General Council for the respective level of credential.

Completion of the courses, however, does not guarantee that a ministry credential will be granted, or that preferential treatment will be given to those completing the required ministerial training courses through the School of Ministry. The credentialing of ministers is a process separate from completion of the educational requirements.

NMSOM is a non-accredited Bible institute. While endorsed by the Executive Presbytery of the General Council of the Assemblies of God for ministerial training, courses completed through the school do not automatically qualify for college credit.

 

 

 

Four Year Assemblies of God College or University

Any student of one of our Assemblies of God colleges or universities with a biblical studies, ministerial studies, or other church-related major (as defined by the Commission of Higher Education) which includes a course on A/G History, Missions and Governance and who has studied 2 years, has met the educational requirements for Certified Minister credentials; 3 years – License to Preach; and 4 years – Ordination.

 

 

 

Education Options

If you have not attended one of our Assemblies of God schools, there are several ways to complete the required courses for the credential you are seeking:

 

          -Global University, our Assemblies of God

             correspondence school;

          -A Seminary, Bible college, or school approved by the
             Network Credentials Committee.

          -If you attended other schools, we are happy to

             evaluate your transcript.

 

Global University courses may be taken at the Institute Level or College Level.  Course work at either level will meet the requirements for credentialing.

 

 

 

Global University offers correspondence ministerial courses for the majority of these requirements.  Visit http://www.globaluniversity.edu for more details or call 1-800-443-1083.  

 

Additionally, Global University offers correspondence courses through the Berean School of Bible.  For more information on Berean visit https://www.globaluniversity.edu/berean_index.cfm.
