Credential Information

informationPlease note the following:

1.   Credentials and licenses are issued only to full-time conference employees. Pastors must be funded through a field budget to receive a credential or license.

2.   Retired employees/pastors who are still working in Southeastern California Conference may receive honorary credentials from the Pacific Union Conference instead of from Southeastern California Conference.

3.   Local church employees or auxiliary employees do not receive credentials from Southeastern California Conference per policy. This includes ordained pastors who are working as local church hires.

4.   Credentials are related to employment. Pastors/teachers who are in transition into Southeastern California Conference have new credentials voted by the Executive Committee when employment in SECC begins. When employment ends with Southeastern California Conference, credentials are no longer valid.
