Our unique process toward licensing and ordination

We are pleased you are interested in ministerial credentials with the Evangelical Free Church of America.

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 EFCA
  • Approve this person for ministerial service under the auspices of the EFCA
  • Provide legal status in the exercise of that person’s ministry

Additional information about credentials can be found on the EFCA's website.
