Become an Ordained MinisterFor those of you who have a call on your life to minister to others and feel you have worked or obtained the knowledge you need to become ordained, Crossroads Christian Bible College has several options based on your level of experience.
Being ordained into the Christian ministry opens many doors for many different types of ministries. It allows you to have the recognition you deserve while working in the field where God has called you to be whether it be in the field of Chaplaincy, Missions, and Evangelism or as a Pastor.
Pastors and Ministers
If you wish to take any of the following programs to earn college credits
you may do so by paying the package fee along with the credit hour fees for each course.
Courses in these programs are generally (3) credits unless otherwise listed. You can see our tuition and
credit hour rates in our Order Center.
If you are already Pastoring a Church or working in the field of
Ministry but have not received your Ordination, you may wish to take our
Ordination test. The cost of the test is $100.00 with a yearly renewal fee
of $40.00. This fee must be paid in order to maintain your Ordination or
License and remain in good standing. It is an important part of the support
of this and other ministries.
It consists of 100 questions pertaining to scripture and situations
that you may run into while working in your Church, Counseling or
Ministering. There is a section of True and False questions, a section
with multiple choice questions and a section where we ask that you answer
in your own words, using scripture references. There is no time frame in
which to complete the test and if for some reason you do not pass the
first time you may repeat the test for a small retest fee of $25.00.
If you do not wish to have a yearly renewal fee once you have received your ordination, there is a Lifetime option for $350.00 without renewal fees where we ask that you keep in touch with us in order to give us updates as to your ministry workings. Crossroads also offers Church Fellowship for new Ministries who need advice or just have questions along the way and wish to have a solid Biblical covering over their Ministry.

What is the Difference between Licensing and Ordination?
Certificate of License - The License is generally used to denote
someone who is legally a ministry of the gospel but is not yet ordained.
Although in many cases it can vary from denomination to denomination it is
generally a prerequisite to ordination for those who are still in
training. In many cases a Licensed minister is someone who works under a
Senior Pastor or mentor for several years prior to their ordination. In
some States both a License and proof of Ordination are required but not
Certificate of Ordination - gives the full privilege to the minister to include conducting weddings, baptisms, funerals, and communion. The Ordination License is given to those who have proven experience and gifting for Christian Service. It is not just a document, but is a certificate that embraces the call that God has on one's life.
Will my Certificate of License/Ordination/ be accepted as Legal?
YES ... in most countries around the world and in all 50 United States.
Our Certificates of License are widely accepted. We operate in many
countries through our Licensed Ministers, Schools, and Bible Colleges.
