The guide to creating compliant, solid ordination programs.

In the Body of Christ, great leaders affirm the call of leadership in others and train them for ministry. To do this, you need to create an ordination program that isn’t just true to Scripture and your church’s values but is also recognized by the government as legal. However, it can be challenging to know what qualifies as a legitimate ordination program in the eyes of the state.

At StartCHURCH, we believe every church and ministry should be equipped with the tools they need to create ordination programs that are true to their values and produce faithful shepherds while abiding by governmental standards. That’s why we created the Equipped to Ordain video course for church planters, pastors, and ministry leaders. With Equipped to Ordain, you can create legal, compliant, and proven strategies for ordaining men and women through your ministry.

“When I started my church, I had no idea how to officially ordain others. I had to do all the research on my own, which took a lot of my time and energy. I wish I had this information from the beginning! Equipped to Ordain will give you the knowledge and tools you need to properly create an ordination program that is both legal and true to your church's values”

- Pastor Raul Rivera, Founder of StartCHURCH
