The qualifications for bishops, as presented in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9, are the norm for all ministers today. In addition, the following groups of attributes are recommended for the ordained minister:


Spiritual Attributes

Moral Attributes

Emotional Attributes


It is quite likely that more inefficiency and failure in the ministry are caused by emotional and personality deficiencies than by ill health, moral defection, and lack of training, education, or talent. Because of this it is most important that the preacher be very mature in self-understanding and healthy emotionally.
The following seven emotional attributes of character are important to the minister: A sanctified temperament (Galatians 5:22, 23); a sense of proportion (balance of humor and seriousness); enthusiasm; realism; a sense of the beautiful (Philippians 4:8; Titus 1:15); sympathy (Romans12:15; Hebrews 5:1); and patience (Romans 5:1-5; 2 Peter 1:5-8).


Social Attributes

It should be noted, that applicants that have previously been ordained with a Recognized, Spirit-filled Fellowship, or have an extensive history of ministry and leadership, do not necessarily have to begin with a license, but can be recommended to Ordination. Contact us for more information.
