Importance of valid "Credentials"

For those who have the call of God on their lives for work in ministry, credentials are the professional ministerial recognition from a verifying and authorizing organization.  Ministries United International is one of the largest licensing organizations that help support and approve ministry students, missionaries, pastors, chaplains, and Christian educators. Ministries United Intl. Credentials provide that essential “card-carrying” membership that can be presented to a Hospitals, on a resume and validate your highly regarded achievement. For many states, credentials are required to perform weddings and other ceremonial services.  Our credentials provided education verification for employers, active registration status online and accomplished real-life experience and service level in ministry.  

MUI partners (members) come from varied denominational backgrounds, but all endorse the MUI Statement of Faith, and our core values have been recommended to us by local churches, senior pastors, para-church organizations, and/or other Christian ministers.
Each MUI member has a wide range of Biblical and theological training. Many are seminary graduates; others are Bible college graduates, and some have received their training through life experience and extension education. All have demonstrated a level of theological proficiency and have been approved for membership by our credentialing Review Board.  As appropriate, some have been commissioned, licensed or ordained.

We do not believe that God always limits His call to those who have attended seminary.  Some have chosen to not go through their denomination ministerial track for various reasons. Therefore, we offer an alternative ministerial track based on a careful evaluation of the candidate’s spiritual life, Biblical and theological training knowledge, ministry experience and Biblical knowledge.

We offer membership to:
  • Senior pastors
  • Staff ministers who serve in the community or denominational settings 
  • Missionaries
  • Ministers of music who serve in the larger community and denominational churches
  • Specially licensed ministers serving in positions of pastoral care, chaplaincy and worship.
  • Ministers who serve as directors of social service ministries including feeding kitchens, drug rehabilitation centers (Teen Challenge type) and other outreach programs.
  • Members with lay ministries in prisons and hospitals
