Reinstatement of Credentials

Ministers seeking reinstatement should request a reinstatement packet from the network secretary’s office, and will subsequently be invited for an interview with a credentials interview committee. Those seeking reinstatement after seven or more years will be required to take an examination.

Excerpts from the General Council Bylaws regarding reinstatement are provided below:

  • Reinstatement of lapsed minister (GC Bylaws Article VII, Section 10.d.)
    Ministers whose renewal applications are not postmarked by January 15 shall be recorded as lapsed as of December 31. They must make application for reinstatement and pay a nonrefundable fee of $100. Contact the executive secretary’s office to request a reinstatement packet.
  • Reinstatement of other than dismissed minister (GC Bylaws Article VII, Section 10.e.)
    When a minister who is a member of our Fellowship is removed from our rolls for any cause, except failure to renew and dismissal, and shall apply for reinstatement, he or she shall not be eligible for reinstatement until at least 6 months have elapsed after his or her name has been stricken from our list of ministers. The application must be made in the district where the minister resides and be accompanied with a nonrefundable fee of $100. The minister shall seek a letter of clearance from the district that processed the termination (if other than Ohio) and forward it to the Ohio Ministry Network Resource Center.

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.
