UPCI Local License Courses

For each ministerial level of licensure, new applicants are required to complete this credentialing training course to obtain ministerial license with the United Pentecostal Church International.  Each credentialing level includes 10 training courses.

Course completion requires:

  • Students are expected to read the textbook, watch the six video sections, and complete the assessment.
  • You have three opportunities to take the twenty-question assessment. If, during the course of the assessment, you answer eight questions incorrectly, the assessment will end and you will have to start over.

Upon completion of the courses you will be able to print a transcript of your grades that you will give to your Sectional Presbyter or District Superintendent before meeting your District's Board.

Your District Board sets the parameters for licensing in their District. Understand your District's requirements in addition to these courses. Taking these course does not imply that you will receive a ministerial license with the United Pentecostal Church International.
