This section is for those entering the ministry and being ordained by other ministers. Any prospective minister should study this section carefully and understand it clearly.
Those entering the ministry should keep in mind the need of a dual ordination: first of God, then of humans. Without proving ourselves faithful before people and obtaining their favor, charge, and blessing, our ministry will accomplish little, if anything.
Responsibility rests upon those who lay their hands on others for whatever cause. Since by doing so we thrust ourselves into this position under the leadership of God, as His Word gives us authority, we need to consider several factors.
