Accreditation & Placement
Licensing, Ordination, and Consecration Council oversees the accreditation, licensing, ordination/consecration of individuals for ministry within the Christian and Missionary Alliance. The credentials granted are valid for any C&MA ministry around the globe.
If you sense a call to ministry and would like to pursue an opportunity to serve with the Christian and Missionary Alliance, here are the steps to take.
- Begin the process by going to www.cmalliance.org/serve and fill out the next steps form. During this phase, you can also get to know about the C&MA, our values, and mission.
- Once you are ready, our LO&CC Specialist will lead you through an online application to be accredited for ministry with the C&MA.
- The next step is an Accreditation Interview. Following the completion of the online application, an accreditation interview by C&MA leadership may be scheduled with you and your spouse (if married). The interview will last approximately one and a half hours and will include topics such as conversion to Christ, call to ministry, personal and spiritual development, gifts and skills in ministry, scriptural and doctrinal knowledge, C&MA theology and polity, and lifestyle matters. Following the interview by the Licensing, Ordination, and Consecration Council an accreditation decision will be given.
Note: If you are approved for accreditation, you may submit your resume to the district superintendent for consideration within the Central District. Other superintendents may also be contacted for positions within their district as well.
