If you do not currently know a Member of FGEA, contact us to find out where you can begin that process of fellowship. We’ll do our best to connect you with ministers near your area.

FGEA has three levels of Individual Membership:
Ordained Minister, Licensed Minister, and Certified Minister
A Certified Minister is a person who has not held ministerial credentials before. This person feels a definite call into ministry and is actively pursuing that calling by working within the local church under the authority of a local pastor/elder.
Licensed Ministers are recognized by most states and the IRS for all legal purposes and sacred functions of ministry.
Ordained Ministers are those that have been duly seasoned and approved for ministry. This step involves FGEA’s recognition of God’s calling as seen in the minister’s life and actions.
Each of these three levels of membership has various requirements that are defined in the FGEA Bylaws; however, common to all three levels is an application process (described above). Once you fill out the application, mail it to the office with your $50 USD application fee and a recent photo.
Then, we will mail reference forms to the references you provided (one of which MUST BE a current FGEA Ordained Minister). When the completed references are received in the office, the FGEA Executive Board reviews the application and makes a final decision on membership. After you are accepted, there is a commitment to support the organization with a designated portion of your monthly tithes (click on this “Contribution Guidelines” link to see an explanation).
