So you sense a call to ministry?  What do you do now?

We know the process can seem a bit overwhelming at times, so we have broken it down for you.  The first step is to formally tell us here in Texas that you believe you are being led to apply for ordination credentials with the Church of God Ministries, Anderson, IN. That is the initial phase, and the steps to do that are given here. 

Read and submit the following:

Step 4
Step 5
Step 6
Step 7

Once all of these steps have been completed, you will then receive an e-mail from TXM that will give you basic information regarding the Leadership Focus (LF) program and instruct you in how to begin the LF process.  Please know that "Module 1" of Leadership Focus is still only part of your application to begin the major steps of the credentialing process.  At this point of Leadership Focus, there is still no guarantee that your application will be approved to move beyond Module 1 and enter into the primary part of the ordination process.

Once approved, Leadership Focus will continue to be your guide through your entire credentialing process along with the Texas Church of God Credentials Committee.  This process includes periodically meeting with the Texas Credentials Committee to assess how things are going for you.
