order the things needed. Please, sir, dear Lord, be
merciful to us and bless these that we have set
before thee to be ordained to the office of Elder. Grant
that they shall have power to pull down the kingdoms
of the world and establish thy churches throughout
the earth. Please help them to remember their
commitment to you and thy word, keeping
themselves unspotted from the world and blameless
before men. That they may be set aside meat for
your use. Lastly, give them knowledge that they may
prove faithful as they serve you and your people in
the office of which they now endeavor to enter. In
Jesus name, Amen.
F.) Then shall the Bishop say:
Beloved candidate(s), you have learned by now how
great the responsibility as well as how important the
office is that you are now being called to serve in. We
exalt you to keep in mind the dignity this office
requires you to carry and the service expected of you
to follow as you enter therein. We can only admonish
you to live prayerfully as you now endeavor to
become watchmen and stewards or the Lord’s good.
Prove trustworthy. You are hereby authorized to
administrate church business, preach the gospel,
feed and provide for God’s people. Your primary
mission is to seek and save those who are lost and
to be a blessing and not a curse to the people of the
earth wherever you go. I want you to remember you
are receiving one of the greatest treasures that were
given to mankind for the Lord is committing to your
trust, the care of His people. Now take heed to my
sayings and how and what you shall feed them, for
the blood shall be required of your hands if you feed
them, for the blood shall be required of your hands if
you feed them a rejected word of yourself.
I know you will remember that you cannot have a will or
mind of your own for you are bought with a price and
you are no longer your own. You are being governed
by the Holy Ghost, you are now commanded to set
aside all worldly cares and give yourselves over to the
study of God’s word that you may be able to reprove,
rebuke, and exhort with all long suffering and lead
God’s people to a higher call to life.
G.) Then shall the said questions deemed necessary
by the Bishop be asked of the candidates:Almighty
God, who hath given you this will to do all these
things grant also unto you strength and power to
perform the same that he may accomplish his work
which he hath begun in you through Jesus Christ our
I.) Then shall there be a call for silent prayer for the success of their ministry.
J.) Then Shall the Bishop say, while laying on hands
of the candidate(s):
Even so, Come Holy Ghost our Souls inspire. The
Lord pour upon you, the Holy Spirit for the office and
work of an Elder in this church and Exodus
International. Now hereby, beloved servant,
you are committed to this ministry, so be thou faithful
until death and the Lord, Jesus shall give you a crown
of righteousness. Preach the word of God and
perform the sacraments that belong to His church,
fight the good fight of faith, lay hold of the gospel plow
and may the Lord God himself be with you. Amen.
K.) And it shall be presented to each of them a new bible
signed by each of the Bishop’s Cabinet members.
(Then said): “Take now the authority of an Elder in
this Church.” By the powers vested in me, I do now
announce you as such. God bless you.
L.) Dismissal with right hand of fellowship: The peace
of God that passeth all understanding be with you all
Jesus warned His disciples in: Acts 20:28 and Matthew 10:5
B.) The candidates(s) shall be brought before the altar by their pastor and another Elder and
the following shall be said:
Bishop _______________, we have brought before you this/these person(s), (Full name)
_____________________ to be considered for ordination.
C.) Then shall the Bishop ask: Who shall recommend this/these individuals? The Pastor(s)
shall be allowed an opportunity to answer, I do/we believe after satisfactory service and
proper training found him/her/them worthy.
D.) The Bishop shall say the following:
Saints and friends this/these are the recommended candidate(s) whom stand before this
company as God allows us the laying on of hands and ordination after these faithful have
vouched for them and stand here as there mentors. We believe they are in harmony with the
pastor, the Exodus operational guidelines and the word of God and hereby believe they are
called to this ministry. If there be any witnesses in this company that shall present facts
without prejudice, why they should not be ordained, speak now or hereafter hold your peace. (pause 5 seconds)
E.) Then shall this prayer be said:
Almighty God, Who by the Holy Spirit, hath appointed this day, this service and has given us
the authority to ordain elders, in every country, city, and
even in the hamlets, then allows us the ability to set
Ordination of Elders (Needed to perform ceremony, (1) Bishop and (3) Ordained Elders)
After the sermon has been preached following a set-aside church service the following shall be read:
All ordained Elders of the Followers of Jesus Christ Fellowship body shall have authority in
and are not limited to: pastoral service, solemnization of holy matrimony, administering
sacrament, baptisms, ministerial training, burial ceremonies, cornerstone laying, ordinations
and appointments of local ordained helps. Other ordained helps shall be permitted to
perform the fore-mentioned ceremonies for (operational/training purposes) only if
accompanied by an ordained Elder. No ordained elder shall usurp authority over their
Shepherd Pastor in the local assemblies.
The office of an Elder is a very key element in the execution and survival of the ministry.
Take heed to the following warnings:
The Apostle Paul warned Timothy in: 1Timothy 6:11; 2nd Timothy 4:1-5
Moses warns Joshua in Numbers 27:23 and Deuteronomy 31:23
David warned Solomon in: I Kings 2:1-4
Followers of Jesus Christ Fellowship of Churches APOSTLE’S CREED
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born
of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is
seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, God’s holy church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN.
