Become a part of Grace International
As a church body:
Please contact the national office, 713-363-2530. We would love to discuss with you how your church can become part of Grace International.
As a licensed individual with another organization:
- Call or email the District Superintendent (DS) in your area. This website has a list of our DS’s regionally located. If you have questions, please call the National Office, 713-363-2530, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Express to the DS your interest in being licensed with Grace International and ask for the complete packet of forms to begin the process.
- All applications must remain on the original form and format, which can be typed in or printed in ink. Computerized forms are also available upon request.
- The Grace International Constitution and By-laws is to be read before completing all applications. The DS will provide you a copy or you can find it on this website.
- We request a current photograph to be submitted with your application, preferably in color and at least a 2x3 size.
- A spiritual resume must be attached to each application.
- There is a $115 credential fee that must accompany first-time applicants. Please note that this fee will be returned in the event the application is not accepted.
- When paperwork is complete, send it to the District Superintendent. A personal interview will be scheduled with you and the district committee.
- The District Superintendent will then submit your file to the National Office for final approval and processing.
- The National Office will notify you of the action taken within six weeks of date received.
As a layperson interested in Licensing:
There are three levels of licensing: Pastoral Development or Specialized Ministry; General; and Ordination. You would start with a Pastoral Development or Specialized Ministry License. You must be supporting a local church and be active in local ministry. You will need a recommendation letter from a sponsoring pastor.
The above steps apply here as well.
