Ministerial Credentialing

Ministerial Development & Credentialing (MD&C) is committed to helping pastoral candidates in the ordination process.

From the opening of a file to elder’s ordination, MD&C guides pastors to ensure that educational and itinerant service requirements are met. MD&C offers courses to help candidates meet their educational requirements. Courses are available by correspondence and through the annual J-Term in which two weeks of intensive classes are offered. Conference approved classes are often available to assist in completing required courses. (Check with your conference office)
