How do I pay for licensure and ordination classes?
Courses for licensing are one payment. You will be directed to a shopping cart to purchase access to individual courses or bundles of courses. You can pay by Credit Card or bank account using the PayPal portal.
Completion of a Ministry Central licensing or ordination course does not automatically qualify for license. Ministry Central can be an integral part of preparing you for initial licensure or the next step in the UPCI credentialing process.
Upon successful completion of a course you may save or print a certificate of completion that can be used to validate your work.
