2. Faith Net USA Ordination Candidates
The candidate and FNUSA begin in relationship prior to ordination.
Ordination is like marriage in that each party should be convinced that
the marriage is not only for reproduction but for relationship and support. Candidates
should expect to have FNUSA Apostolic/Prophetic Teams minister in their
local churches several times during the ordination process to begin establishing
Candidates for ordination are expected to be involved in continuing
education which will serve to develop the call of God upon their lives.
Those received as valid ordination candidates by letter of acceptance
will walk in relationship and accountability while pursuing ordination.
Candidates should begin to meet all relational and financial qualifications
as listed in Ordination Requirements.
Ordination candidates should attend FNUSA Regional Ministers
Meetings to establish relationship with other ministers within the Network.
These meetings will provide a basis for apostolic and prophetic oversight
and accountability. Candidates will receive the leadership of FNUSA directly
as well as through any designated regional representatives.

all candidates must be prepared to grow in every way through mentoring
and the Spirit of God.

might be a living personification of His purpose to all. Their goal is
for mature ministry in self as well as seeing integrity, honor, purpose,
and place restored to the fivefold ministry. Ordained ministers are encouraged
to attend Network seminars and workshops at least twice each year.

accountability, and training.
