JOINING THE COMMUNION
We are excited that you are interested in connecting with the Archbishop/Chief Apostle and the Apostolic Communion of Churches! We believe in a communion that is a joint and shared participation. We have our part and you have your part and together it is called communion. We are not a paper/ordination mill. We are about covenant relationships. We are here to validate and sanction your ministry. We provide apostolic covering, counsel, and pastoral ministry. We believe in providing training to our clergy to assist them in their walk with Christ. We believe in covenant and hold to that dearly. All of our members are in covenant with God, the Communion and each other.
To become a member of this communion submit the application below along with a $40 application fee that is non-refundable. Please leave a comment with your full name when submitting the application fee stating "application fee". A background check and a copy of any previous ministerial credentials should be submitted via email to the Archbishop's Office. On the application, please let us know when we can call you for an interview.
If your application is received, you will be issued a letter of acceptance and a membership certificate. You will also be issued a letter of recognition of your holy orders. Once you have taken the classes to acclimate you to the Communion and have supported the work for 6 months we can schedule you to receive official credentials from us at the next COAAB Midterm or Annual Congress.
Note: Define as thorough as possible your doctrinal stances from the Trinity to the episcopacy, etc. This will help us better determine how to acclimate you to the teachings of the Apostolic Communion of Churches. DO NOT give us single words to describe your doctrinal stances and background, and DO NOT give us a short summary, such as for example, "Death burial resurrection of Christ. Pentecostal Evangelical Sacramental." DO NOT repeat one of the creeds. Explain every single view in AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSSIBLE as one would for a job application or college entry essay. DO NOT add the date you were ordained when it states: "who ordained" but the actual denomination in which you were ordained with online references. We are a serious communion, and your seriousness in filling this application determines your membership acceptance or denial, among other prerequisites previously stated. After submitting the form you will be redirected to our payment page to confirm payment. We maintain records of those applicants who complete the payment process, and those who do not.
