Ordination

Ordination is recognition by the Church that a person has been called to ministry as a specific way of life.

Sacraments

A Calling from God to Follow and to Serve as His Christ's Disciples.

Ordained ministry is an exciting and big commitment. It requires thought and prayer as you prepare.

The ordination process begins and ends with a leader called by God to the Gospel ministry. It also involves the recognition of this call by the local church where the leader is serving. But the Converge family of churches and church leaders are also involved in advising the church and in serving the ordination candidate.
