It was wonderful for the Endorsed Community to gather for our Annual Retreat in Atlanta, Georgia last month prior to the Annual Gathering. For a recap of the Annual Gathering click HERE.


In order to maintain Endorsement with the Alliance of Baptists all endorsed chaplains, pastoral counselors, and CPE educators agree to:

– Participate actively in a local congregation;
– Make an annual financial contribution to the Alliance of Baptists of a minimum of $150 to maintain membership;
– Submit an Annual Report including affirmation of the Covenantal Code of Ethics for Endorsed Clergy for the Alliance of Baptists by March 1st of each calendar year;
– Notify the Alliance of Baptists’ Endorser of any change of ministry setting and any legal, ethical, or professional actions filed against the person within one month of the change;
– Attend an Alliance of Baptists gathering at least once every four years. Attendance at Alliance gatherings is required in order to foster relationships within and among the Alliance of Baptists family and nurture the well-being and potential for ministry of those recognized by this process;
– Complete at least 6 contact hours in clinical or professional ethics every 5 years.

The endorsed person must notify the Endorser, via email, of such a change within one month of the change and include a brief description of such change. Said changes can be emailed to
