Credentials granted through the Southern New England Ministry Network by the General Council of the Assemblies of God are renewed on an annual basis, by December 31st of each year. Our Network's preferred method of renewing each year is online through the General Council's automated renewal system which sends your Renewal Form to your email address. You will be able to renew electronically using your AG Passport. Renewing online helps us effectively process your renewal in an expedited manner.
In addition, Renewal forms can be downloaded from the General Secretary’s website after November 1st, and hard copies are sent to ministers shortly thereafter.
A tithing verification form may be downloaded here.
The following excerpts from the General Council Bylaws address credential renewals:
General Council Bylaws Article VII, Section 10, Credential Renewals...
b. Expiration date. All fellowship certificates are valid only until December 31st of each year and must be renewed annually. The renewing of credentials is the responsibility of the individual minister.
The minister is to complete the form, taking care to answer all questions and sign the form. The renewal along with any outstanding tithe, should be mailed to the Southern New England Ministry Network postmarked no later than December 31st of each year. If General Council dues are owed, please include a separate check made payable to the General Council.
