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.
- Enlisted Membership – for those requiring further ministerial development before being approved as a Commissioned Member and deployed as a recognized clergy.
- Commissioned Membership – for approved Global Workers deployed as recognized clergy.
- Ordained Membership – for clergy who are called to vocational ministry.
Steps to being approved as a global worker including ACOP membership
You can either obtain your own police/background check (~$20-$30, depending on your local police station) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can permit us to submit a background check on your behalf through our partner, MyBackCheck ($35).
ACOP will determine whether you proceed as an Enlisted member, Commissioned member, or transfer of Ordination. A developmental plan will be provided to Enlisted members.
A place to gather with your Regional Director and Lead Team and others who are becoming members of ACOP in your region, ask questions, pray, and minster. You will also receive your Minister Certificate at the end of the retreat. Your Regional Director will contact you when an Open Door Retreat is scheduled.
After approval, the Missions Directors and ACOP office staff will help you complete a series of smaller steps before you are deployed to your country.
