License and Credential Committee
The License and Credential Committee is one of the oldest
institutions in the church. It processes applications for
qualified persons, who are desirous of serving as credential
ministers, and accepts recommendations from ministers for
appointments to the Ministry.
Credential ministers are appointed to vacant posts only after they have fulfilled various professional, pastoral, social and church obligations and received favourable reviews from the Executive Board.
Members of the church may be appointed ministers pursuant to a series of procedures, which start with an assessment of the candidates stewardship by the local pastor and end with induction in the office in question, in General Convention by the Executive Board.
