ELIGIBILITY


Certification is open to individuals working on a local church staff or in a denominational office, provided their job responsibilities have a primary element of support to local congregations in one of the key areas of administrative leadership.  These candidates must submit the document of denominational leadership, which confirms their work with congregations. Other interested parties also are welcome and encouraged to take part in this educational opportunity.

Candidates are encouraged to be a member of the national association while completing certification.

Candidate must have completed at least three years of full-time, full-time equivalent or verifiable volunteer work in a local congregational church setting or denominational office in which he/she has had primary responsibility in one or more of the key areas of administration. Candidates may start the certification process prior to obtaining the experience requirement but are bound to the five years completion limits.

Calculation for full time equivalent is based on a 2080 hour work year. Full-time equivalent may be in more than one congregation as an employee or outsource support. Individuals should submit in writing the details of their part-time experience and why they feel it is equivalent.
