Courses for Credentials:

If you're looking for the right schooling option for you to start your credentialing classes or to continue in them in order to upgrade your credentials, you're in the right place!

There are three levels of credentials available through the Assemblies of God. The level of credential a person is qualified for depends on both ministry experience and education completed.  (Each level is described on our Apply for Credentials tab.)

Below is a list of our SDAG schooling options for you to find the one that fits your needs:
