Class I (Ordination)
As an internationally recognized prophetic voice to the Church, Dove Ministries International provides spiritual covering and authority to men and women of like-minded faith who have demonstrated God’s call upon their lives.
DMI recognizes callings to both the Five-Fold Ministry and to the Helps Ministry.
To meet the needs of individual gifts, and to ensure continuation of scripturally based church governments, DMI confers four distinct ordination and licensing classes.
DMI calls Class I ministers “ordained” ministers. An ordained minister is one who has been set aside and consecrated by the laying on of hands of the presbytery in a public ceremony. Ordained ministers have a divine call on their lives that is recognized by DMI. They are called to do the work of full-time preaching and teaching in one of the five-fold offices of the Church: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, or Teacher. Ordained ministers will be recognized as professional clergy engaged in ecclesiastical work.
