Questions about License with UPC

To what extent does the organization become involved , if an independent church pastor becomes licensed with the UPC?

Do they pay dues, is it optional or required.
What is the amount?
Is it based upon income of tithes and offering?


So do you have to accept women ministers in a mixed congregation?

Re: Questions about License with UPC

1) You can get the training from https://ministrycentral.com. There are other requirements to get the license, e.g., a certain amount of hours of preaching.
2) You fill out an application form and submit it (in the case of an ind church, no idea how)
3) Then the district board gets together, evaluates your application, and interview you and your wife.
4) If you pass, you get the license.
5) You are required to pay a monthly fee to keep the license. You are also expected to vote in the district meetings.

I believe you get access to some benefits.


Regarding the women thing, it depends on your congregation. They don't force you to do anything in that area. They allow for different opinion on areas not in the Articles of Faith.

I know it’s probably a touchy subject for you, so if you need some time to think about your answer I understand.

I don't need time to think about my answer.
