Becoming a Licensed Official Worker

The entire process starts with establishing a MyCMA profile so that we can get to know you.  Create a MyCMA account at www.cmalliance.org. Be sure to check the box "I've read and agree to the Terms of Use" and then click "Create Account."  

Check your e-mail and click on the link provided to activate your account. You will need to enter the User ID and Validation Key provided in the email, then click "Proceed." Sign into your new account with the same e-mail address and password you created.

Go to www.cmalliance.org/serve/ and click "My Application" in the blue navigation bar. From there click the red "MyCMA Sign In" button and enter in your username and password. Click the red "Launch Application" button.

Fill out the "Release of Records and Mediation Agreement" and then continue with the rest of the application. This application includes a Doctrinal Questionnaire, Character References, Biographical Inventory, a Bible Knowledge Exam, and several other forms.  

Our district has two additional required items to the ministry application. Please download and complete the following forms. The Transcript Request form should be submitted to your school and the Permission to Obtain a Background Check returned to our office by mailing/faxing/scan to email.

Download Permission to Obtain a Background Check Form (please return the completed form to the district office)

Following completion of the Application, an accreditation interview by the district's Licensing Committee will take place.  The committee will assess your character, calling, and readiness for ministry as an Official Worker with the Alliance.  The district office will provide you with the next available date(s) to interview with the Committee upon completion of the Application.

Once you have passed the accreditation interview:

Without placement: If you are accredited without placement, you will receive a letter affirming your accreditation from the district superintendent.  Accreditation provides you the opportunity to seek a pastoral ministry position with any of our churches within the United States as you interact with the appropriate district superintendent. 

Even without placement in an Alliance ministry, you can complete the Alliance Polity Course which is the next requirement towards licensing with the C&MA. To enroll in this course you will need a district assigned mentor.  Please contact the district office if you are interested in taking this step.
 
Ministry opportunity available: Upon completion of the Alliance Polity Course you will be issued a ministry license if you are currently placed or will be placed at a C&MA ministry in our district.

Please note that for various reasons, not everyone is approved for vocational service with the C&MA, but we desire to help you find your place in God's work.
For questions regarding the application process, please contact the district office.
