How did you hear about the Marriage Program?
I understand that the Office of the Registrar General requires that in order to obtain and maintain Registration to Solemnize Marriage an individual must be a member in good standing with an active Denomination. I acknowledge that the cost of membership with this Denomination following the Workshop is $50 per month, to be paid in advance quarterly, bi-annually or annually?
I understand that if I do not pass this course successfully that sponsorship with membership will not be offered to me. I will have to take the paid course again
Are you currently employed? If so what is your occupation?
Will you be able to afford the quarterly financial requirements of membership with this Denomination?
All Members of this Denomination must volunteer no more than 10 hours of their time each year to this ministry. These hours must include your participation at the annual membership meetings, ordination ceremonies and annual student pulpit assessments. Members must also provide a teaching submission to our newsletter as well as a Ministry Report twice per year. Other ministry events and outreach excursions are optional.
Please provide us with Name and Telephone # of 2 references (If you are a YSPEO Ministry Training Student please let us know this in the box below).
Please upload a valid piece of Photo ID (up to 15mb)
COSTS: Due to Covid-19 the Marriage Workshop will be postponed to a later date. Usually this is completed prior to sponsorship however, due to social distancing we will process applications immediately and you will be required to take this Workshop when it becomes available. Failure to uphold membership fees until then or to attend the Workshop when available will forfeit your Registration.
I do not agree.
