ATTN New Ministerial Students:

By now we have probably received notice from your pastor concerning the action of the local church and your pastor granting you local preachers license. If you have not already done so then you will need to have your pastor send a letter to the Ministerial Studies Secretary (Rev. Wally Rezendes). You will want to enroll in a seminary or university or the Alabama School of Ministry for the course of study for one of the following:

  • Elder in the Church of the Nazarene
  • Deacon of Church Administration
  • Deacon of Christian Education
  • Deacon of Compassionate Ministries
  • Deacon of Music Ministry
  • Deacon of Youth Ministry
  • Deacon of Chaplain Ministries

Another requirement for the course of study is to have a mentor or advisor who will supervise you throughout your ministerial preparation. You will need to make a selection of an advisor/mentor. You may begin thinking and praying about this selection. It could be your pastor or a Nazarene pastor nearby. Your pastor and or advisor/mentor can guide you in the right direction and answer many questions that would be helpful to your progress.

You will need to have transcripts sent to Rev. Wally Rezendes directly from any college, bible school, or seminary in which you received any course work. Credit will be given where possible.

Should you be interested in the Alabama Nazarene School of Ministry (college level courses on the Alabama South District) it would help you move along at a faster pace and would give you classroom experience (unless you are already enrolled in a seminary or university). If you are interested in taking any course work there, you should contact the District Office at (334) 365-3188.
