Among the requirements in order to be ordained are character issues and the candidates' understanding of their "calling" from God. Good moral standing in the denomination is basic. A clear call from God into the ministry is also required.

Other issues like Bible school preparation, competence, people skills, and sound personal practices like management of finances and discipline were also included.

CAMACOP continues to search for called men and women into the ministry. It realizes that the growth of the Society depends on the dependability of its leaders.

Ordination also happens only during the bi-annual general assembly, the general assembly being the ordaining body of the denomination, except for instances when ordination of certain individuals are of extreme necessity and expediency during which the Board of Trustees of CAMACOP takes a necessary action.
