Join Full Gospel Australia

We welcome applications from Ministers of the Gospel to join Full Gospel Australia who desire to be in relationship with other ministries, churches and ministers who have a heart for their local communities or the communities in which they minister. Like a family, we think differently, we experience a range of worship styles and expressions, yet we value, love and trust one another, uphold one another and fellowship together to build strength, character and valuable friendships.

Four Types of Credential

Full Gospel Australia seeks to help ministers and their churches or ministries by providing four different types of credential.  These strengthen your church or ministry by providing different levels of covering, applying different responsibilities and helping the Church or Ministry to recognise and honour those who work within the body of Christ in differing capacities. 

The four different Credentials are:

  1. Ordained Credential: This credential is generally sought by Senior Pastors, Ministers and those who need to have the highest level of covering and responsibility. You will be registered with the Commonwealth, State and Territory’s Attorneys General, receiving the authority to authorise or solemnise marriages under the Marriage Act on behalf of the Full Gospel Churches of Australia. This credential helps with access to hospitals, prisons, and other government or semi government institutions. 

    A numbered credential card with a photo of the credential holder and an expiry date is issued, providing secure identification which is validated yearly.

     chaplain is not expected to have the depth of knowledge and skills a pastor is required to possess, yet they provide essential services within communities as they care for, listen to, comfort and give biblical wisdom to people within their communities. 


  3. Community Chaplain’s Credential: There is an increasing need within communities for chaplaincy in many areas. 

    This credential is suitable for those who work within or out of a local church or ministry, under direct pastoral oversight and who do not need to be identified in a pastoral role. This credential helps with access to hospitals, prisons, some emergency services and other government or semi-government institutions. A numbered credential card with a photo of the credential holder and expiry date is issued, providing secure identification, validated annually.

  4. Christian Worker’s Credential: This credential can be titled with varying headings, such as: “Youth Worker,” “Local Minister,” “Local Area Pastor,” “Children’s Ministry Leader,” or whatever the local church or ministry’s need. The local senior pastor’s approval is needed for this credential. Each church or ministry may have as many Christian Workers as they need. 

    This credential is suitable for those who work within or out of a local church or ministry, under direct pastoral oversight and who are integral to the function and ministry of the church but are not identified as either a senior or associate pastor. This credential helps with access to hospitals, prisons, some emergency services and other government or semi government institutions. A numbered credential card with a photo of the credential holder and an expiry date is issued, providing secure identification which is validated yearly.
