Steps to Ordination
Ordination is a process. The Church of the Nazarene charges the South Texas District Board of Ministry with the responsibility that all candidates for ordination are called of God and fit for Christian service. This verification is completed in three ways...
- Examination - Each year students will be required to meet with someone who will evaluate their progress in ministry. This will be with a local church board when holding a local ministers license and later with representatives from the District Board of Ministry when holding a district license. The purpose of examination is accountability and clarification.
- Education - The Church of the Nazarene requires students to complete 24 courses of ministry. The courses consist of theology, ministry, evangelism, and church history. For a complete listing of courses required, CLICK HERE.
- Participation - Those enrolled in the School of MInistry will be expected to put into practice what they are learning. They should have a specific area of ministry leadership that demonstrates the calling of God on their lives.
