Credentialing at the EFCC
We are grateful for the hard work and diligence of the EFCC’s Ministerial Standing Committee (MSC) in implementing and explaining the credentialing procedure. They have fleshed out terms which were decided on at Conference 2010, and clarified at Conference 2014.
We want to share with you the current process being developed to see our leaders grow in empowerment and accountability.
There are two kinds of credentials made available in the EFCC: the Ministry Credential and the Ordination Credential.
The MSC has attempted to explain these and who they’re for. They have shared a letter with all of the EFCC congregations.
Many of you may be asking, in light of the result of the vote on the credentialing proposal at our past EFCC conference, what does this mean for the overall credentialing procedures? What, if anything, changes? Who is eligible to receive what? The purpose of this communication is to clear any potential confusion in regards to how our EFCC credentialing procedures will function after the conference vote.
You can read the letter in full:

Also, the video below was created during the proposal process, to help provide a more thorough understanding the intentions and cautions regarding ordination within the EFCC. While a little dated, as it doesn’t reflect Conference’s decision on gender, it still does a good job of explaining what the EFCC view of ordination is, and what it isn’t.
