ABOUT MINISTRY LICENSING/ORDINATION

Let us recommend you for ministry licensing upon completion of your year of biblical training.

Ministry Licensing is the first step towards Ordination if you are new in the ministry.  It is a probationary period where the individual is at a level of learning Christian principles and competently putting them into practice thereby developing the new nature given by God through salvation under the guidance of an administrative overseer.  (Basic Christian conduct:  Romans 12:9-21)

Ministry Ordination is the next step and is the acknowledgment and validation of the inward work of God evidenced in the outer man and demonstrated by a mature Christian who has proven themselves to be accountable, responsible, reliable, of moral integrity, honesty, honor, and a person of excellence showing forth the character of Christ.  (The Fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22, 23)

If you complete our Accredited Program, upon completion we will recommend you for ministry licensing or Chaplains license leading to ordination with our good friends at Gospel Alliance Ministries.  Once you have totally completed the 22 AISOM courses in the paid Accredited Program and have received your printed diploma and transcript, you may then apply for licensing on their website at which time they will contact us.  We will then verify and personally recommend you for the ministry licensing or Chaplains license.

 Please Note:  Free Students do not qualify for this program and we will not recommend any student who has not completed the courses before graduation.  If you are in the free program and want to pay and switch to the Accredited Program to qualify for future licensing and ordination: CLICK HERE

 Visit the Gospel Alliance Ministries website:  www.gospelallianceministries.org 

The cost is only $45 to apply in the US and $49 outside the US and then $45 in the US and $49 outside the US to renew yearly, but you must be in our paid program to be considered.

Dear Staff, “I must say that the response to sending me my degree was very business-like, and also very quick. I received it in perfect condition today. I am interested in pursuing my education to the next level, and when I make up my mind, I know that this is one university that I can depend on.” Thank You.

“I have been working on “Battle for the Body” and wow, what a concept. I have been a pastor for nine (9) years and have barely even scratched the surface of all the knowledge. I am finding the wisdom is great and I like what I see. The lessons are challenging. If we only knew as pastors what God is really like we would be a lot more effective in our ministries.”

“I want to express my delight in my first study course. It is truly enjoyable, and rich in a wealth of information. It is concise and to the point – simple, but yet profound in context. I want to express my appreciation to Ames Christian University for making such a wonderful program available, and most of all to the Lord for directing me to your Website. “

“I am really enjoying the Old Testament survey. The added study sections after the self-tests are really good. I am currently in the book of Judges and I seem to be coming along well. God has blessed me with a mind ready to search out and receive His truth. Thank you for this ministry and I am very pleased with the materials so far and I look forward to the coming modules.”

“I enjoyed the first course I am taking. Although between work and my home life with the wife and child I do not get as much studying done as I would like but I am moving along. I would like to say thank you for offering these courses at such affordable prices otherwise I would not be able to go to college right now.”

“I have just recently finished the final exam for Old Testament survey and am preparing to start the next course, New Testament survey. I have enjoyed the layout of the courses. They are informative, simple, and easy to follow, yet offer the challenge that an accredited course should offer. Thank You.”

“Hi, it has been close to one week since I enrolled in your college. I just completed Chapter 5 in the Old Testament Survey course. I think the way Harvestime International has put these courses together is great. I am very excited about the studies and being enrolled at Ames. I wish I would have found out about Ames a long time ago.”

“Genesis has turned out to be a great study. I’ve spent a little too much time on it and have slowed down on progress with the rest of the course, but I think it has been worth it. The course has turned out to be even better than I thought it would be.
