General Guidelines for Ministers
It shall be the duty of ordained and licensed ministers to participate in all phases of the church program—general, conference, and local. All ordained and licensed ministers are amenable to the conference, conference superintendent, and Conference Executive Council. Ordained and licensed ministers not serving as officials or senior pastors should use their spiritual gifts and ministries to help build the church.
Ordained and licensed ministers are expected to attend conference-sponsored activities. Ordained and licensed ministers are expected to preach God’s Word consistently with their calling and credentials. Ordained and licensed ministers must maintain ministerial activity to retain credentials.
Ordained and licensed ministers are expected to tithe monthly to their conferences on all income from both ministerial and secular sources. Income for these purposes includes, but is not limited to, salary, housing allowance, utilities paid by a church, and honoraria.
