We are so pleased that you have an interest in pursuing ordination in the Church of God in Indiana.

The Leadership Focus – Partnering to develop healthy, growing missional leaders to expand the Kingdom of God in the present age.
The Leadership Focus is an online ministry development tool, designed to equip and strengthen leaders in the Church of God through relational training with a missional perspective. We believe in a missional approach to leadership development, and believe there are certain characteristics that those responding to a call to lead should possess. We particularly look for these qualities in those pursuing credentials. We believe that rising leaders should be: diligent in learning and growth, passionate about a compelling call to mission and ministry, committed to interdependent relationships that further the kingdom and a person of strong integrity and clear moral direction.
This new credentialing process is designed to last three years, broken into 6 six month modules, each focusing on a core area of ministry and leadership development: Commencement, Competencies, Character, Confessions, Connectivity and Celebrations.
Each module will be hosted by a coach who will lead you through guided online web training calls. You will be expected to participate in each web meeting along with fulfilling each module’s unique requirements. As you move through each six month module additional fees will apply.
The first module (Commencement and Application) is $275. The second – sixth modules are $150 each and are billed to you prior to your enrollment in the next module.
There are two enrollment periods thought the year one in February and one in August
