Upgrading your credential is a great way to sharpen your skill set through ongoing education while moving toward the biblical precedent for ordination.

Mail the following items to the Georgia District Assemblies of God:
- All Required and Applicable Forms (see left menu)
- $125 application fee

Once we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule your credential exam. You will receive a study guide to help prepare you for the exam.
After you have successfully completed the exam, we will schedule you for an interview with the Credential Interview Team.
Once you have completed your interview, the Credential Interview Team will vote to make a recommendation for your credential. We will notify you the results of the Credential Team and the Presbytery’s decision. Upon recommendation from the presbytery, we will send your application to the General Council office for final approval.
You can expect to receive your official credential card and welcome packet in the mail within 4 to 8 weeks once the General Council has approved your credential.
