Should I join
the FGEA Ministry Network?
Here's a handful of great personal reasons...
A SPIRITUAL COVERINGFGEA Ministry Network offers a three step process for growth in your ministry. Most new Members start as a Certified Minister, advance to be a Licensed Minister as they become more active in ministry, then become an Ordained Minister - all under the guidance of seasoned mentors and a true Apostolic spiritual covering.FELLOWSHIP!!We emphasize Fellowship because the strength of our relationships with one another sets us apart from denominations or movements that compare or compete with one another.
Instead, we choose to celebrate the individual uniqueness of each person and ministry that makes us stronger together. We also believe we can do far more together than we can each do individually.
...recognize those who labor among you...
esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake.
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
BELONGING TO SOMETHING BIGGER!
Expand your reach. You’ll enjoy frequent opportunities to connect and build relationships with an international network of affiliated pastors, missionaries, evangelists and their respective ministries.
Your ministry can tap into resources like our well-established youth camps, retreats, advances, etc.
CREDIBILITYIncrease your impact and influence! Your voice will be amplified in collaboration with other anointed FGEA ministers and leaders. Let’s impact our world for Christ by working together to fulfill the Great Commission.NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED CREDENTIALS
We’re NOT a mail order ordination “mill.” Government agencies and private institutions increasingly require authentication of your role as a legitimate minister of the Gospel – authorized to conduct weddings, visit hospitals or prisons, or even to serve as a military or hospital chaplain.
Ministerial Training and Development
- Life Long Learning groups
- ZOOM groups
- Ministers in Training Internships available
- Mentoring/coaching available
FGEA wants you to receive a quality biblical education.
So, we’ve established five unique scholarships:
- The Rees Scholarship, Royce Scholarship, and the 120 Scholarship are each focused on those pursuing the call of God to enter full-time ministry in the local church. They apply toward any approved Bible College or ministry school.
- The Kostley Scholarship focuses on those interested in serving in missions.
- The Booth Scholarship focuses on students who desire continuing education to enhance ministries in the local Church.
Ministerial &/or Family Counseling
Occasionally, we all need loving, Spirit-filled counsel for our families and our ministry. FGEA provides FREE licensed counseling for Pastors and families of those in ministry. FGEA has set aside financial resources to help relieve the financial burden of professional Christ Centered counseling services, during times of crisis, lose or family issues.
We’ve secured the services of Godly attorneys, CPAs, and other professionals to insure that FGEA and your ministry is protected to the legal extent of the applicable laws.

As a network of ministers, churches and ministry agencies, your church or ministry can also become a Member of FGEA.
But remember, we are not a denomination exercising control over its members. Local churches remain autonomous and self-governed. Churches and ministries retain possession of their properties and their own style of church government.
