APPLICATION FOR CHURCH/MINISTRY MEMBERSHIP
The decision to unite a ministry with an established organization is not to be done unadvisedly or without careful thought, prayer and an information base. The overall desire is to provide for the Pastor and congregation a method by which they may grow into their new prospective family, hence making the transition flow as smoothly as possible.
