UPCI Ministerial Credentials Courses

UPCI

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

- Each applicant must read the Bible at each licensing level.
- Each applicant must read the Manual of the United Pentecostal Church at each licensing level.
- Each applicant must complete the Ministry Central training series for their credentialing level.
- Each series consists of ten courses, and each course is purchased separately.

For each course 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 each course you will be issued a certificate of completion. Once you complete all ten courses in the credentialing series, you will need to print the transcript of your grades and give it to your sectional presbyter or appropriate district official before meeting your district's board.

Your district board sets the parameters for licensing in their district and may have additional requirements.  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.
