Q: Is my ordination legal?

A: Yes, your ordination with the Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem Inc and Kehila Elohei Kedem is legal and binding. Once you get ordained, you are a minister for life. Your ordination is as legal as a Catholic, Protestant or Reform Ordinations.  

The First Amendment (made applicable to the States by the Fourteenth) Everson v. Board of Education, 330 U.S. 1, 67 S.Ct. 504. There was said:
"Neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force or influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion…."
Most states have laws about who can perform a marriage ceremony, limiting the officiant to a "judge or court clerk, government official, or a minister or clergy member". Some statutes define a clergy member as someone who has a congregation and a following. You as a Clergy Member of this ministry have a congregation "Kehila Elohei Kedem", and those of you that are Rabbies with this ministry are called to form a congregation in less than a year after being ordained, as is biblically called to do so. Also our Ministers have a particular belief system: we are all Netzarim Messianic Jews, following all the Torah's Commandments and Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, man/No God, born of Yosef and Miriam, of the House of David.
Also our Rabbies go through the process of s'micha in person with three Legally Ordained Rabbies as witnesses to the Ceremony of laying of hands as it stated in Acts 6:6. 

Credibility comes from the minister.  If you are approach and ask for credentials simply present them and say nothing unless asked a question. 

Q: How old must I be to get ordained?

A: You must be at least 20 years old and biblically married to become registered as a Messianic Roeh - Pastor (Numbers 14:29-30; 1 Timothy 3:8-13; Titus 1:5-9), or you must be at least 30 years old and biblically married to become Messianic Rabbi with the Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem and Kehila Elohei Kedem (Numbers 4:3; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9). 

Q: Must a person be Ordained to be a Preacher or Evangelist?

A: The simple answer is no.  Ordination is not a requirement that must be met in order to preach or evangelize. Dwight L. Moody, the great American evangelist of the latter half of the nineteenth century, was never ordained. Also, Charles H. Spurgeon, famous pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London, never received ordination either. There is a scriptural basis for ordination yet: Yeshua chose a select group of men whom He “ordained” or “appointed” (John 15:16; Mark 3:14). It should be recognized that it is not a church that makes a man a preacher; it is God who does that.
