What It Means to Be Credentialed

A credentialed minister is trusted and approved by our board of directors to perform the tasks of a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ in a particular ministry assignment. There are two types of minister assignments: at a Foursquare church, and with our Foursquare Association.

Become a Minister at a Foursquare Church

With Foursquare ministerial credentials, you can serve in a pastoral leadership role, perform marriages and burials, and more. This option is available whether this is your first ministerial credential, or you want to move your credentials to join Foursquare’s global family.

Become a Minister Through the Foursquare Association

The Foursquare Association includes a network of ministers at non-Foursquare churches who share similar values, mission and commitment in relationship with Foursquare. With credentials through our Association, you benefit from our spiritual covering, resources and events.
