A critical part of our role is to provide both global and national events, seminars, conferences that facilitate and empower Pentecostals coming together, to share their experi2nce, strength and hope with each other
Doing What’s Needed
The Worldwide Pentecostal Federation will do the following:
Represents Pentecostal at inter - denominational events. Before such events, members will be asked whats issues they seek to raise.
Provide each member with a membership number.
If required will provide all members with certificates of membership signed by the current President.
Deliver annual events both online and at strategic locations
Deliver a qualifying programme leading to internationally recognised ordination into the Pentecostal church.
For those ordained a laminated ID card will be issued. Further details available on request.
Provide support and protection if your church is being persecuted by individual or governments
Facilitate networking between Pentecostal Churches.
Enable elections to take place every 3 years for those seeking to hold office
As active Pentecostals missionary work is seen as a key part of growing the Kingdom. To date this has mostly been in Africa and Asia. However there are plans to extend this work to other parts of the world.

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
Advancing Our Agenda
ORDINATION FOR PENTECOSTALS
The ADAPT programme
We believe that God calls us for the priesthood, however, we know that formal ordination is seen as a prerequisite in the secular world, showing validation by the world.
This programme is specifically designed for “self-appointed” pastors to obtain a creditable worldwide qualification and thus impact their influence.
The programme is provided with two options
The Certificate if successful can lead to ordination as a Pastor. The Diploma leads to ordination as a Pentecostal Revd.
Both programmes are six months long, the content varies in both. The theology is the same, but in the Certificate, the content only has only 25% of the management and leadership training component.
Both are tough, vigorous intensive programmes with two elements each taught by specialist professors
(b) Management and Leadership
The Diploma has 2 lessons a week, each lesson with scored assignments.
It requires a minimum of 4+ hours of study a week.
Across the whole programme the standard pass requires an average of 60% (for 50 assignments) The material in this programme is a Master’s degree level.
For the Certificate, the content varies so there is one lesson (theology) per week plus once a month an additional lesson on management and leadership Across the whole programme the standard pass requires an average of 55% (for approx 32 assignments)
The programme is delivered entirely online through Podcasts, Video and through Face to Face meetings. Mentoring is available to those who seek it.
The lead personnel are
Professor Senior Pastors Andrew Witman Ph.D. (USA)
Professor Dr. Bishop Peter James (UK)
Revd Margaret Velez Cruz - Coordinnator
The programme will be delivered (and the award given) through the Worldwide Pentecostal Federation although all denominations are welcome. Ordination by Dr Bishop Peter will only be into the Pentecostal church.
Finally, there will be fees, however, these are based on your personal financial circumstances which will be discussed and agreed in confidence with you.
Naturally, those living in third-world countries will not be charged as those from richer nations.
We strongly feel fees enhance not only your self-esteem but are a measure of your commitment. All fees paid to go to the charity to assist in providing other events.
Fees are paid in installments, 33% at the beginning, 33% after 3 months, and the final installment on completion. Failure to meet payment of fees resuts in immediate removal from the programme,
For quality control, there are only 15 students per programme. Programmes begin Jan and Julyeach year,

REINFORCING OUR COMMITMENT
Although we are a UK registered charity, we do not give financial gifts to individual members. All donations are used to provide services and benefits to all our members through training, special events and specific missions
Tackling the Issue
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our partners are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers our community and delivers the support they need, when they need it.
