Applicants transferring from another organization must provide proper letters of reference from their previous leadership before their application will be approved. Exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis.

All applicants who have previously been ordained by another organization shall appear before the Board of Directors of LFMM or the Credentials Committee and be thoroughly examined to determine the merits of their ordination and their qualifications for ministry.

The Board of Directors (or their appointed representatives) of LFMM shall determine whether to accept the former ordination or grant local or general license.
