Our Licensing Process

Do you feel called to pursue credentials with The Foursquare Church?  Whether you are called to serve at a local church, as an evangelist or as a missionary, here is what you need to know about the licensing process within the North Pacific District and The Foursquare Church:

  • First, connect with your Senior Pastor. Your Senior Pastor’s support and recommendation are required for this process. Please have them contact Cortney Howell at to request next steps. 

  • If approved, you will be enrolled in the licensing process at the next available enrollment opportunity.  In the North Pacific District, we enroll licensing applicants on a quarterly basis (dates are listed below*).

  • Next steps include: background check, recommendations, and application paperwork.

  • Once the background phase and paperwork is completed and approved, the applicant is assigned a coach, receives study materials and is enrolled in our online polity course.

  • When the coaching process and study phase is complete, a licensing interview will be scheduled.

  • Upon the licensing panel’s recommendation, your District Supervisor is responsible for giving approval for licensure and requesting final approval from the Foursquare Board.
