Kingdom Leaders Licensure and Ordination Program

Kingdom Bible University (KBU) offers an ordination program that helps to strengthen the pulpit and clergy ministry of the local church. In a day and age where most clergy do not have the opportunity to attend seminary or participate in formal on-campus Bible training, they still have a need to be trained and affirmed for ministry. The KBU Kingdom Leaders Licensure and Ordination Program is designed to provide affordable and highly accessible Bible training for the serious Kingdom leader.

The KBU Kingdom Leaders Licensure and Ordination Program will emphasize the seriousness of biblical preparation for the call of ministry to those who follow you. The great Apostle Paul went away for three years for his initial study and then another 14 years to ensure that he was doctrinally solid. He also checked his doctrine with the apostles in Galatia and had hands laid upon him by the church leadership. Ordination is an important process in your ministry development and should not be taken lightly. KBU would like to assist you in your ordination process by providing you and your ministry with quality training and a public service of ministry affirmation.

The KBU Kingdom Leaders Licensure and Ordination Program can be offered to the individual or used in conjunction with the local church. The local church can utilize KBU as the institution that provides the training for their clergy for ordination and assists, if so desired, with their public affirmation. If your church desires, KBU can provide customized ordination certificates with the name of the sponsoring local church on the certificate. KBU can assist in taking your local church ministry to the next level by helping to ensure that all of your local church ministers are receiving uniformed Kingdom Bible training.

The KBU Kingdom Leaders Licensure and Ordination Program is a tremendous opportunity for the local church to participate in structured ministry preparation for those who are called to ministry at the local church level. The KBU Kingdom Leaders Licensure and Ordination Program also offers a structured program of ordination for the local church pastor who may never have had the opportunity to complete a structured process of ordination and would like to sharpen their Bible knowledge while contributing more credibility to their five-fold ministry office. Finally, KBU offers ordination for local ministers who have been recommended by their local church for ordination training and preparation.
