Licensing & Ordination

Credentialing Through NYC Full Gospel

NYC Full Gospel Theological Seminary takes Bible college to a whole new level!  Weather you are a student with us, or laity looking to become a licensed minister or become an ordained minister online-look no further! Here we license and ordain men and women for ministry purposes. 

 

In doing so, we have established The National Association of Christian Counselors, Ministers , & Churches (NACMC) for that purpose. The National Association also provides a place for counselors, ministers, and churches to network and have accountability and credibility. If your ministry is seeking to be under an Christian organization umbrella, you can join our Church Chartership groups.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. Martin Luther King, Jr.
