Licensed Pastor – a Non-Ordained Position


Licensed Pastor is a non-ordained status of consecrated leadership suitable to many ministry settings in the Swedenborgian Church. A member in good standing in their local Swedenborgian Church may, in conjunction with the Board of Directors of that ministry, make a joint application for the licensed pastor status. This process, like the Induction Path process, involves an application, a course of academic study, and ultimately, the approval of  the denomination’s Committee on Admission into the Ministry, Council of Ministers and the Dean of the Center for Swedenborgian Studies.  For more information, please contact us at:
