Each member will be required to renew their credentials annually on or before January 31st. The Renewal form will be filled out noting any changes in the credential holders status. Accompanying the Renewal Form will be a brief description of the current ministry. An annual renewal fee will accompany the form prior to the new credential being issued.

Licensed Minister Annual fee: $50.00
Ordained Minister Annual fee: $75.00
This process provides the individual to review and evaluate their ministry activities for the year. Often the simply process of this review accountability will allow for adjustments in the individual ministry. The same ministry assessment can be used for reporting to your leadership for their consideration. This is a vital function for annual review purposes and can often effect salary considerations. This becomes increasing useful as an ongoing assistance for fund raising.
Members Financial Obligations…
To be a credentialed member of this organization, you will be encouraged to support it with your prayers, your heart and your finances. The General Board has established a Biblically sound and Christ centered policy for monetary support. Each member should be aware of the need for both prayer and monetary support. The primary funding stream for this fellowship is its members. We cannot function without financial support from the individual members. We believe that when a person is financially vested in something, they will care more for it. The same goes for this fellowship.
The annual renewal fee provides some measure of resourcing. However this falls below the threshold of what it takes to operate an effective ministerial organization. In addition to your annual fee we would like you to consider making a donation to support this vital part of your ministry. Our daily prayers and spiritual covering are free. We are available to provide Godly counseling to you at anytime it is needed. Also free. Access to the network of ministers costs you nothing.
Suggested annual gifts are:
$50.00 for Able Worker level.
$100.00 for Licensed Minsters
$150.00 for Ordained Ministers
This is not a requirement or obligation. This is not a limit to what you may give. Just simply a starting point for your consideration. You may choose a smaller or monthly support amount. Many of our ministers are from lower economic situations and struggle to make even their annual renewal fee. May we suggest you follow the encouragement in the letter to the Romans.
Romans 12:8 KJV “- – – he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.”
Simply stated, follow the direction of the Holy Spirit.
