NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING CREDENTIAL APPLICANTS
If you know a non-English speaking person in ministry who is interested in applying for credentials, please contact Teresa Bates at firstname.lastname@example.org We would be happy to explain the requirements and walk you through the application process.
The following situations qualify a non-English speaking credential applicant for a Language Seminar to assist them with the application:
- If the individual can speak, read and write English fluently with good comprehension of meaning and purpose, he/she is disqualified from the seminar.
- If an individual has taken any class in English without the help of translation from any school or learning institutions and passed this would disqualify them.
- If an applicant has successfully completed the requirements for a previous credential through the standard process, they are disqualified to advance their credential through the seminar.
- If an individual were born in the United States, this would disqualify them. Please note: If there are circumstances or sufficient reasons why this should not disqualify a person, consider each case by case. There may be some exceptions.
- If they have served in the US Armed Forces this would disqualify them.
- If any previous divorce and remarriage issue exists this must be cleared through District and General Councils before attending a seminar.
- Any criminal investigations, charges or convictions should be addressed prior to attending a seminar.
- The candidate must provide proof of Legal Residency, i.e. R-1 Visa, Green Card, Employee Authorization Card, Naturalization Certificate, US Passport. There can be no exceptions here.
