​​​​DIRECTIVES OF RECOMMENDING A CANDIDATE FOR LICENSING

There are two categories of recommendation of a Candidate who is saved, sanctified, and Holy Ghost filled with the evidence of speaking in tongue and after 2 years at the present home church with pastoral observation:

  • Deaconess Missionaries are women who have been observed by her Pastor for a minimum of 2 years and are saved, sanctified, and Holy Ghost filled with the evidence of speaking tongue and whose ministry involvement is within her local church.  However, with the permission of her pastor, her ministry may be extended beyond the local church, in which case, an Evangelist Missionary accompanies her.  She must study the Word of God, seek training through Institute classes, Bible Studies, college, etc.  This level of preparation will equip her for effective ministry.  After a minimum of two years of dedicated service as a Licensed Deaconess Missionary, she may then become a Candidate for the Evangelist Missionary License (to attend the class) with the recommendation of her pastor.  The role of a Deaconess Missionary is not to be confused with that of a Deaconess in the local church.​​

  • Evangelist Missionaries are women who have been observed by her Pastor for a minimum of 2 years as a Deaconess Missionary and are saved, sanctified, and Holy Ghost filled with the evidence of speaking tongue, qualified, and available to minister beyond the local church.  Her experience and knowledge should enable her to effectively, and accurately, proclaim the Word of God in soul-winning crusades and wherever a door of opportunity is opened.  

 

Candidate Requirements of Attendance and International Pre-Requisites: 

The Deaconess Missionary Candidate must be saved, sanctified, and Holy Ghost filled with the evidence of speaking tongue.  She must attend The Jurisdictional Department of Women’s School of Licensing and Credentialing to complete the full mandated Course of Study (orientation and 7 classes - schedule of class months will be given to her at the first/orientation class) and she will complete the pre-requisite background check and the pre-requisite on-line Ethics Training before proceeding to the written and oral examination after the full course is completed.

Evangelist Missionary Candidate must be saved, sanctified, and Holy Ghost filled with the evidence of speaking tongue.  She must have a Deaconess Missionary License and then will attend The Jurisdictional Department of Women’s School of Licensing and Credentialing to complete the full mandated Course of Study (orientation and 7 classes - schedule of class months will be given to her at the first/orientation class) and she will complete the pre-requisite background check and the pre-requisite on-line Ethics Training before proceeding to the written and oral examination after the full course is completed.  Please note that the Evangelist License is deferred for those Candidates with children aged nine (9) and under; however, they do qualify for Deaconess License.

The Female who is aspiring to be a Candidate must have submitted the full Registration Fee by Cash App to the Women’s Department  Treasurer - $WSJWomenCOGIC, prior to MARCH 1ST (of this year of the Course Facilitation) without exception.  (The future cost of any other class books, background check, on-line Misconduct Training and IDOW Licensing Process Fee are at the additional expense of the Candidate):

The International Department of Women Licensing Procedure for Missionaries is now internationally standardized, and nothing can be omitted or changed (additions are encouraged) as these licenses are through the International not the Jurisdictional church.  All requirements, including attendance at every one of the 8 classes, must be adhered to in order to proceed to the examinations.   It is crucial that the character of those recommended be in compliance with the efforts of our International Church and this Jurisdiction in particular.
