For your convenience, there are two options for ministers to renew their credential this year.
- Complete the hard copy mailed to you
- Complete and submit form online
Avoid late fees by renewing online.
Renewals must be completed by DECEMBER 31st.
Q: Is there a renewal fee?
A: There is no renewal fee in addition to your tithe and General Council dues. If you need to get caught up on this year's tithing obligation (90% of the tithe from ministry income and 65% of the tithe from all other income), you can pay online by clicking here. You can pay your General Council dues online by clicking here.
Q: What if I have not met my financial obligation to the Georgia Assemblies of God or the General Council?
A: Unless you represent a case of severe suffering, such as a major accident or medical problems, General Council generally will not renew your credential until you have paid the annual dues for your credential level ($300 ordained, $240 licensed, $120 certified). If you have not met your tithing obligation to the Georgia Assemblies of God, or show a $0 or minimal balance for your giving for the year, please attach an explanation. We will contact you to see how we can find a solution to your situation.
Q: I am retired, do I need to renew? Who has to renew?
A: Every credentialed Assemblies of God minister-regardless of your credential level (i.e.,certified, licensed, ordained) and regardless of your status (active, disabled, senior active, senior retired) must renew annually. Every year some ministers needlessly put themselves through emotional and financial anguish because they procrastinate and fail to renew before the deadline. Save yourself some needless pain and suffering by doing it on time!
Remember the deadline to submit your credential renewal is DECEMBER 31, so be sure to submit it before the busy holiday season. If you have any questions about the renewal process, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
