This will also provide a good record of each candidates contact information in case of an emergency or if needed for future contact should the relationship end. Lastly, this creates an opportunity for our leadership and governing bodies of the association to once more confirm that each candidate agrees with the sincerely held doctrines and beliefs of Shift Today Ministries.

We believe that as a ministry, it is important to have records showing that our ministry leaders are qualified based on our ministerial credentials. Requiring (48) community service hours per year, (120) of training per year, (60) hours per year of ministry practicum which is fulfilled through various areas of Shift Today Ministries, and a exam be taken and passed with a minimum requirement score of 80% does just that. In addition, requiring candidates to take and pass an exam helps to establish that candidates go through a “considered, deliberate, and responsible act.” The exam will be issued upon the completion of our required criteria. These questions test each ministry leader’s familiarity with the Word of God, class materials and hands-on training just to name a few.
