Legal ordination of every believer is a free benefit available to each and every active member in Full FellowshipÂ with The United New Testament Church, International Ministry Association, Inc. We unreservedly honor and uphold the priesthood of all believers.
As an ordained minister, please understand that there are certain expectations in this deeper relationship intended to develop a well-rounded, fruitful Ministry Association in relationship with Christ and one another:
First and foremost, make sure you are signed up to receive email alerts from the Ministry Association. Â This isÂ theÂ only wayÂ weÂ dispatch information to our members, andÂ it’s your responsibility to ensure you are signed up and that our messages aren’t going to your spam folder.

RELATIONSHIP Â – Â MEMBERSHIP Â – Â AUTHENTICITY Â – Â ACCOUNTABILITY Â – Â STEWARDSHIP
[kleo_list_item]1.Â RELATIONSHIP:Â A personal, active, ongoing, conversational two-way relationship with God through Christ JesusÂ – To be direct, without this as our “every day normal”, weÂ make a mockery of Â the Lord Jesus Christ by claiming to be His minister in the earth. UNTCI isn’t interested in MINOs (Ministers In Name Only). If this requirementÂ is offensive to you, you may not be in the right place.[/kleo_list_item]
2.Â MEMBERSHIP:Â Maintain activeÂ Full FellowshipÂ with UNTCI Ministry Association – OneÂ cannot legitimatelyÂ ordain / appoint an individual to a position within anÂ organization without them actuallyÂ being a *member* of that organization.Â Membership application isÂ offered at no cost to followers of Jesus Christ.

[kleo_list_item]3.Â AUTHENTICITY:Â If you intend to minister near children in any context, you are REQUIRED without exception to pass a Personal Background Check. This additional assurance is optionally available to every UNTCI Minister, but is a strict requirement of those ministering near children in any context. We fully expect the general public to inquire as to whether or not you are safe to be around their children. We will answer honestly. If your Ministry does NOT Bring you in contact with families or children in any way, you can request a waiver via this form.

4.Â ACCOUNTABILITY:Â Strict personal adherance to theÂ Member Covenant & Code of EthicsÂ – It’s incredibly important that you realize with freedom comes responsibility. Let us endeavor to be a personal light in the darkness – bastions of hope and unconditional love on behalf of our Savior.Â

5.Â STEWARDSHIP:Â You Understand that Ensuring the Long-Term Stability and Outreach of Your Ministry Association through Regular Monthly Giving is a Benefit to You, Personally.Â We’re not going to over-spiritualize this aspect of our Ministry Association. There are two different takes on “tithes and offerings” from a New Testament perspective – pro and con ~ each with merit. We are not arguing for either. We are simply asking you to understand that money keeps the lights on, and keeps your Ministry Association strong and secure into the future. We expectÂ our members to be a part of that, even if it’s a commitment of $1 per month. It all helps. We are a 100% Volunteer-Run Organization, and no person on our Board benefits one iota from your money… other than our shared Association-wide security and covering to continue to serve the Lord in freedom from top-down business model churchianity.Â If you are unable to afford a supporting contribution of the bare minimum of $1 per month, waivers are available.
