Ministerial Restoration Program

The Center for Ministerial Care is commissioned to serve as a pastoral care agency to ministers and their families during times of crisis; one of CMC’s primary responsibilities lies in pastoral support to ministers whose ministerial licenses have been terminated. According to the General Assembly Minutes:

Any minister whose credentials have been suspended shall be offered a program of restoration. The restoration process shall involve ministry from the entire church body. The prescribed program of restoration is supervised by the International Executive Council and implemented by a ministry team including, but not limited to the following: the Ministerial Advocate (member of the Executive Committee), the state Administrative Bishop, the local church, a pastoral mentor, a Christian counselor, and the Center for Ministerial Care. The CMC shall coordinate the ministry team and serve in a facilitative and consultative role.


In Florida, the Administrative Bishop is assisted in this process by Dusty Wilson In the spirit of Galatians 6:1, every effort is made by the church to fully restore the minister and assist him and his family through this time of crisis.
