Being an ORDAINED MINISTER is not a requirement for members of the Traveling Ministers Fellowship. Also, many of our members have been ORDAINED elsewhere and are active in other fellowships.
However, ORDINATION through TRAVELLING MINISTERS FELLOWSHIP can be a very special part of membership, even though ORDINATION it is not the primary purpose of TMF. For people who desire the special kind of spiritual oversight and laying on of hands that ORDINATION entails, Traveling Ministers Fellowship is available for ORDINATION.
If you are interested in applying for ORDINATION through Traveling Ministers Fellowship, or if you would like to know more about the requirements for ORDINATION, please contact us at 302 559-1766 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
TMF does not require a Bible College or Seminary degree for ORDINATION. But we are interested in a person's calling by God to minister, in the experience a person has had in ministry, gifting and knowledge base, and in the maturity and character of the person wanting to be ordained. We believe that ORDINATION involves a special pastoral responsibility and relationship before God between us and those ORDAINED by us, and we are careful to enter this kind of relationship carefully and prayerfully, seeking God's will in the matter.
