Each year, ministers are required to renew their credentials. Credentials are renewed by completing the renewal form online or the paper version mailed to each minister, who has not opted out, in the fall. Forms must be completed and returned by December 31.
Failure to complete the renewal process by December 31 will result in a $50 late fee. After January 15, you will need to complete the reinstatement process ($150 fee, application, and interview required).
In order to renew credentials, a minister's dues must be current with the National Leadership & Resource Center and with the Iowa Ministry Network. More information regarding dues is available below.
