Review of License

ORDINATION

One who is established in full-time ministry and wishes to be confirmed by the laying on of hands to participate in a committed relationship to CIAN as their primary source for apostolic/prophetic covering, relationship, accountability, and training. Their goal is mature ministry and seeing integrity, honor and purpose restored to the fivefold ministry. Members ordained by CIAN may be recommended as approved ministers and afforded other privileges.

 

Ordination for Ministries Other Than Pastors

CIAN recognizes that in the Body of Christ there are offices other than pastor, such as apostle, prophet, evangelist, and teacher. While a person holding such an office should be a member of a local church, he/she may also head a Christian ministry that is not a local church. Such membership privileges in CIAN should be available to that minister even though their organization is a translocal ministry. Translocal ministries must meet the requirements.

Renewal of Ordination

Ministers will have their certification reviewed each year through the completion of Annual Covenant Update Forms. This will provide an opportunity to evaluate our relationship and re-examine our association to establish that we are still moving together in the same vision.

 

ASSOCIATE MINISTER

This level of affiliation must be initiated by an active CIAN Ordained Minister. This unique level enables the CIAN ordained minister to affiliate individuals that they pastorally / apostolically oversee within their ministry. The associate minister will relate and be accountable to the ordained minister (associate overseer) rather than the leadership of CIAN. The associates ministerial functions, guidelines and credentials are established and documented by the overseer’s authority and in accordance with the laws of the state in which they reside, not CI Apostolic Network.
