Classes offered by the Northern New England District School of Ministry meet the educational requirements for credentialing with the Assemblies of God. However, participation and completion of the classes does not assure nor give advantage for granting of credentials or give preference in the credentialing process.
The credentialing process is separate from the District School of Ministry and is determined by the Northern New England District. Final decisions to award ministerial credentials is made by the credentials committee of The General Council of the Assemblies of God, upon the recommendation of the Northern District Council Credential Committee. Persons desiring to be credentialed with the Assemblies of God should contact the Northern New England District Secretary-Treasurerís office for further information.
