Financial Requirements

By action of their respective deliberative bodies, ministers are expected to give financial support to the Ohio Ministry Network and the General Council of the Assemblies of God.  Ohio AG ministers send 80% of their tithe on all income, on a monthly basis, to the Network Resource Center, and support the General Council as noted in the Bylaws excerpts below.

Ohio Ministry Network Bylaws Article V. Finance, Section 2. Income a.

All credentialed ministers shall contribute no less than eighty (80) percent of their tithes as dues to the Network from both ministerial and secular incomes, forwarding the same to the executive finance officer each month.  A minister who has an arrangement with his/her local church or ministry to forward his/her tithes/dues directly to the Network Resource Center is responsible to see that this is done on a timely basis.

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.
