The Ordained Minister program is academically the same as the Licensed Minister Program; however, the Ordination Program does have some extra personal ministry requirements as listed on the application for ordination.   

The program will prepare you for ministry and work as an Ordained Minister. You will learn the foundations of counseling and be prepared to offer formal counseling through your church or to the public as a ministry. You will learn different forms of counseling, how to incorporate counseling on a three-fold approach of spirit, soul, and body. Our advanced counseling program will take you beyond the foundations to prepare you to get into the issues that people have with themselves and with others. One of our flagship programs, G.O.D. 14 (Getting Off Drugs in 14 weeks), you will learn the dynamics of addiction, that being substance abuse or addictive lifestyle without drugs. The Crisis and Trauma course will prepare you to be a first responder and how to handle the effects of trauma. 

As a student in the Ordained Minister program, you will be challenged and equipped to walk in the highest standard of ethics while learning doctrinal foundations, the power of prayer, forgiveness, and spiritual authority. You will gain practical guidance and have “templates” to conduct many services and ceremonies such as weddings, funerals, sermons, baptisms and much more.

What to Expect

All work is self-paced and on an individual basis. Courses are designed to build upon the student’s accumulated knowledge while also instilling confidence for practical application. Once enrolled in a course, you will have access to all content. You will need the required textbook above to begin your studies.

A grade of 85% is considered passing for each of the open book exams/assignments. 

All programs must be completed within 6 years. The student that does not complete the entire program of study within the time limit may be dropped from active student status and all monies will be lost. Extensions for hardship cases may be applied for in writing. All decisions from the administrative board are final.
