Fast Track Process

In 2011, the General Presbytery of the Assemblies of God approved a fast-track credentialing process.

Do you or someone you know meet any of the following criteria? You do if you are you a:

  • Lead pastor who wants to bring their existing church into the Assemblies of God? (ordained)

  • Staff pastors of that same church who currently hold credentials with other organizations? (ordained)

If you answered “yes” to these questions, then the fast-track process may be for you!


Please contact the Credentialing office for more details:


Applicants for ministerial credentials with the Assemblies of God must be saved (new birth, born again), baptized in water and in the Spirit (with evidence of speaking in other tongues).


Education: For fast-track applicants, all education is waived, but please go ahead and request any transcripts or education you have completed related to the credential process, General Council will look favorably on those who have previous educational experience.


Marriage History: While history with divorce and remarriage is not an automatic disqualifier from credentialing, it can be in certain cases. Please communicate with the Network Secretary’s office,, prior to starting the fast-track process for clarification in these areas (515) 276-5493).
