Fast-Track Process

In 2011, the General Presbytery of the Assemblies of God approved a fast-track credentialing process. A new fourth category was approved in the August 2014 meeting for ministers spouses.

Do you or someone you know meet any the following criteria?

Are you a:

  • Lead pastor who wants to bring their existing church into the Assemblies of God? (ordained)
    • Staff pastors of that same church who currently hold credentials with other organizations? (ordained)
  • A ministry-active spouse who is married to a minister who has been ordained with the Assemblies of God for a minimum of 10 years? (certified/licensed)

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then the fast-track process may be for you!

Please contact the Network Secretary’s office for more details:


Applicants for ministerial credentials with the Assemblies of God must be saved (new birth, born again), baptized in water and in the Spirit (with evidence of speaking in other tongues).

Education: For fast-track applicants, all education is waived, but please go ahead and request any transcripts or education you have completed related to the credential process, General Council will look favorably on those who have previous educational experience.

Marriage History: While history with divorce and remarriage is not an automatic dis-qualifier from credentialing, it can be in certain cases. Please communicate with the Network Secretary’s office,, prior to starting the fast-track process for clarification in these areas (614.396.0700).

Who is Jesus?

More than two thousand years ago God sent Jesus Christ into this world. He became one of us, but he did nothing wrong. He showed us what God is like – merciful and kind. He healed the sick people, the blind were made to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk. Some people followed him, and to them he gave a new way of life – God’s way. But others hated Him because He was so good, and he exposed their evil ways.

He gave his own life as a sacrifice, a payment for our sins. He died on the cross to save us. Three days after he died, Jesus Christ came back from the dead. Now He lives in the power of an endless life to meet your need, to be your Saviour, to forgive your sins. Jesus Christ is the only one who can do this for you.
