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.


There are 3 different membership types that would apply to Global Workers. You can read more about membership types in the Policy Manual.

  1. Enlisted Membership – for those requiring further ministerial development before being approved as a Commissioned Member and deployed as a recognized clergy.
  2. Commissioned Membership – for approved Global Workers deployed as recognized clergy.
  3. Ordained Membership – for clergy who are called to vocational ministry.
