Is ROAM a mail order ministry?
No, all membership is by application only. There are general requirements for membership. Our
credentials are legal and recognized across the United States and many countries of the world. We
are a Full Interdenominational Church which meets on a regular and consistance schedule and
hold prayer and worship services.
I have never been ordained, can I still apply for ordination?
No, in order to be recognized as an ordained minister, one must have been ordained by the
imposition of hands with documentation to verify the ordination. This is both a legal matter and
policy of ROAM which helps support our standing and integrity. This, however, does not negate
credentials with ROAM. It may even be possible for ROAM to help you become ordained.
Can I get ordained through ROAM?
We feel that the process of ordination is best left to the local church or to those that are better
acquainted with the individual minister. However, ROAM can, under certain circumstances, assist in
the ordination process. There are certain requirements that must be met. Membership with ROAM
must already be in place before ordination can be considered.
Is ROAM a denomination?
Not in the way most denominations are recognized. We are, however, a denomination in the sense
that we are Full Gospel in nature.
(Interdenominational) Many members, one body. Differant administrations, but one body.
Will ministerial credentials give an individual tax exemption status?
No. Individual Ministers are not eligible for tax exemption status. This is available only to Churches
and Outreach or Evangelistic Ministries. However, there are certain allowances that may be
available to the individual Minister.
Can I get tax exemption status for my church?
Yes. There are certain qualifications that must be met.
Does the church have to be incorporated ?
No. But it will benefit the church to do so.
What about tax exemption for an evangelistic ministry.
Yes, this is available for those that qualify. In order for an evangelistic or outreach ministry to give
tax contributions in the USA they must have tax exemption.
Does ROAM permit women to be members?
Yes. Membership with ROAM is not based on sex, race or national origin.
