What you need to know

When applying to become a Global Worker with ACOP Global Harvest / Beyond, you will also be required to hold ministerial membership with ACOP of Canada. This provides a family and network of leaders for you to belong to, who will support you, and to whom you will be accountable. Therefore, following these next steps will enable you to apply as a Global Worker and a member of ACOP of Canada at the same time.

If you are already an ACOP Commissioned or Ordained Member, please click here.

If you are not already an ACOP member, for legal and ministerial reasons, all Global Workers and their spouses (if married) are required to become ACOP Commissioned Members before departing for their field of service. A Commissioned Member is a person who has committed themselves to vocational ministry. Please continue with this form to apply as a Global Worker and an ACOP Commissioned Member.
