If you desire to apply as a candidate for five-fold ministry ordination from Apostle John Eckhardt and the IMPACT Network, you must meet the qualifications below, and then submit a request for review. Ordination is not a requirement for IMPACT affiliation, since many ministers have either been licensed or ordained through other churches, organizations or denominations. But there are some who may feel that because their previous ministerial licensing or ordination service did not involve the presbytery of apostles and prophets to impart and prophesy into their lives, they would desire to receive a fresh commissioning and ordination. So this is only for proven full-time ministers who have the fruit (works) of the five-fold office they are called to and requesting ordination for.
• The candidate for ordination will be of good character meeting the requirements of 1Timothy 3.
• To be considered for ordination, you must submit an IMPACT application including the 3 references or recommendation of an IMPACT member in good standing, and on a separate paper give us a summary concerning your calling and ministry, and why you desire IMPACT ordination.
• Furthermore, to be considered for ordination, it is imperative that we get know you and your ministry, as Scripture clearly states that we should know them that labor among us, and to lay hands on no man suddenly. For this reason we want to encourage you to participate in a yearly IMPACT event where you can become acquainted and build relationship with some key IMPACT leaders. We also would like to encourage you to reach out and develop relationship with IMPACT leaders in your region that they might also provide a recommendation for ordination. In addition, we ask that you consider bringing in an IMPACT Network or Crusaders Church apostle or prophet for some meetings in your church to evaluate your ministry and provide wise counsel and apostolic strategies to help you transition and or build for the future. You may contact Prophet Shirene Anderson, IMPACT Coordinator at Shirene.IMPACT@sbcglobal.net for more information concerning this.
***Upon completion of the commissioning/ordination service, you will receive IMPACT credentials in the form of an official certificate that can be framed.***
