Works to recognize, train, and provide accountability to all professional clergy who serve the Church of God in Michigan. This ministry will oversee:

Licensing and Ordination of ministers
Ministerial Development
Recognition of Congregations
Yearbook Recognition
Clergy/Congregational Discipline

Credentials will work closely with Church of God national and state assemblies to provide consistency and integrity in credentialing for all ministers.

The Ordination Process with the Church of God in Michigan is with Leadership Initiative.

Please visit their Website: ( Click New Credentials Candidates Registration and select Michigan. The system will walk you through the rest. A note for your future financial planning: You must complete your payment of $275 before you are officially enrolled in the Leadership Initiative Commencement module. A Zoom Orientation Meeting accaints you with the process approximately a month prior to your starting date. An iPad or similar device with a camera is needed. During this time you will get to meet your Ordination and Licensing Team and meet other candidates who are entering the credentialing process.

The next opportunity you will have to enroll is March 2015 for the Spring 2015 session.
