Options for Ministry Education & Training

Recognizing the tremendous diversity of the Body of Christ and the ministers God is raising up all over Iowa and the nation, educational requirements (LINK TO EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS) for credentials with the Assemblies of God can be met through a variety of customizable training venues.


The Iowa Ministry Network is pleased to offer all the necessary credentialing courses through convenient and economical weekend training venues at the IMN Office (in Urbandale) on a monthly basis through the Iowa School of Ministry . This is a great way to learn from fellow Iowa leaders and to rub shoulders with other Iowa individuals who are exploring the call of God on their lives.


Additionally, the Network Presbytery grants credit towards credentialing for course work related to the credential courses endorsed by the Assemblies of God, completed at various Christian institutions* in the United States.
