We build more than a Church, we created a training center to effectively equip the Believer to discover their call and gifts. From authoring several books and ministering in different countries, the Holy Spirit has instructed me to EXPAND my apostolic calling to benefit you and your ministry!
My purpose in establishing The Gathering Ministerial Association (TGMA) is to support, energize and facilitate YOU for the call of God upon your life; to fulfill that calling! To summarize, to impact nations for the Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit!
God is raising up a bold new generation of preachers to bring revival and reform to the nations. Pray about becoming a member of TGMA family today. I believe that it will greatly enhance your effectiveness as a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. I personally invite you to join The Gathering Ministerial Association. My time is devoted to your calling.

TYPES OF CREDENTIALS:
This is for the person who is just beginning his/her ministry experience. Commission papers recognize a call and ministry gift of God on your life. It will provide you with covering, solid counsel and moral support during your foundational years (usually one to two years).
After one or more years holding Commission papers and/or evidence of growth in ministry experience, a minister may apply for a regular Ministry License. The license permits a minister to administer every ministerial function. Most hospitals, jails and prisons will recognize a Ministry License.
This is the highest ministry credential offered by TGMA. After one year as a licensed minister, ministers may apply for Ordination, which allows them to perform all the sacraments and functions of the ministry. Ordained ministers must fulfill all the requirements for experience and provide fruits of a proven ministry call.
