Anyone seeking to renew an Association License to Minister or an Association Lay License to Minister or anyone seeking to receive either of these as a new license should notify Pastor Cathy Batson by one of the following means:
Email: cathybatson AT eastlink DOT ca
For either a new license or a renewal, an interview will be required. (It is anticipated that interviews will be held on March 15, 2014 at First Baptist Annapolis Royal following the regular Council meeting.)
Those seeking a new license must be a member of an Annapolis-Digby Baptist Association church, must have held a Church License to Minister for at least one year, provide a brief statement of their journey of faith (conversion, call to ministry, experience, etc.), and provide two letters of reference from someone who has first-hand knowledge of your faith experience and ministry.
Those seeking a license renewal will be asked to give an update of their ministry.
Licenses will be issued/renewed if recommended by the Licensing Committee and approved at our Annual Association Gathering/Meeting in April. Licenses must be renewed annually to remain valid.
