Licensure vs Ordination
CIAN offers two different statuses for ministry leaders, the Licensed Minister and Ordained Minister. The Licensed Minister status is for those pursuing full-time ministry and seeking affiliation with CIAN, providing access to resources and opportunities to connect with other ministry leaders. The Ordained Minister status is for those established in full-time ministry seeking a committed relationship with CIAN, offering official recognition and confirmation of one’s ministry and access to higher levels of leadership. A comparison table can help ministry leaders choose the status that best suits their needs and goals.
