Ministers

Financial Responsibilities

By action of their respective deliberative bodies, ministers are expected to give financial support to the Potomac Ministry Network and the General Council of the Assemblies of God. Potomac AG ministers send 75% of their tithe on all income, on a monthly basis, to the Potomac Ministry Center, and support the General Council as noted in the Bylaws excerpts below.

 

Potomac Ministry Network Bylaws Article IV. Fiduciary Stewardship 2. Agreements a.
Each minister shall contribute not less than seventy-five percent (75%) of his or her tithes on all earned income and allowances into the ministry Network Operational Fund each month. Exception shall be made in accordance with the General Council bylaws or on a case by case basis by the Network Board of Directors.  The fulfillment of the agreement to contribute to Network support as stipulated herein shall be considered as being an essential requirement for the renewal of ministerial credentials each year.

General Council Bylaws Article VII. Ministry, Section 10. f.
Support of Headquarters. The work of The General Council of the Assemblies of God, in its program of developing the spirit of cooperation and fellowship in U.S. and world missions fields, incurs considerable expense, including the financial support of the executive officers and offices.

The required minimum is:

  • Ordained – $25 per month ($300 per year)
  • Licensed – $20 per month ($240 per year)
  • Certified – $10 per month ($120 per year)

Compliance with the above requirements shall be a prerequisite for renewal of credentials of all active ministers. If their contributions are in arrears, they shall be given opportunity to meet this deficit with their renewal.
