About Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem, Becoming Ordained through us, our Religious Courses, Ministry Training and Titles 

Question #1: How and where can I become a Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem Minister?

A: Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem (WMEK) consists of a group of independent Messianic Jewish leaders with a common vision rooted in Torah, Jewish Halacha, and faithful to Messiah Yeshua / man - no God. 

We are a legal USA Florida ministry (Florida State Certificate) with our main office located in Caracas, Venezuela and a small branch in Lehigh Acres, Florida.

You can become ordained right here on our site www.messiahskingdomonline.com or in our Church Building known as Congregation Kehila Elohei Kedem! All titles, courses, training ministry and Ordinations are given by the authority of our ministry and our church. Continue to ordination process.

Question  #2: Is my ordination legal in USA?

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.

Question  #3: How old must I be to get ordained?

Question  #5: 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.

Question  #6:  Why should I pay Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem to become ordained if I can get a free ordination elsewhere?

A: Some churches offer free ordinations.  If you like it take it. Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem, Inc is a legal ministry, filled with the State of Florida. We keep a permanent record of your ordination including your name and address and the date you were ordained. We keep permanent records on all ministers with currently valid ID cards.  Also, we are under the umbrella of a real church Kehila Elohei Kedem, with real members and in good standing with the state where they are incorporated.  

But most important  we are not a Christian Organization, but a Jewish Organization, we believe Yeshua is the true Messiah of Israel, man born of Miriam and Yosef according to the flesh. Yeshua s not G-d. Also we only ordained Messianic Rabbi and Messianic Roeh.

Question  #7: How long does my Letter of Good Standing with WMEK last?

A: The Letter of Good Standing is valid only for 2 years, you have to validated again as well as your WMEK Photo ID. Our ordinations do not expire, and there are no renewals or fees required. You may contact us to have your ordination deactivated at any time, but by default you will remain a WMEK Minister for life. 

Question  #8: If I have to prove that my ordination with your church is real and legal, can you verify my ordination?

A:  Yes, we can.  Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem, Inc and Messiahs Kingdom Ministries, inc have been in continuous existence since 2006 and we keep records on everyone we ordain and trained.  This enables us to verify your ordination if you request us to do that. Occasionally we are asked to verify a minister's standing.

A: The two most common ways are presenting either a Letter of Good Standing or your Ordination Credential.

Question #16:  If I'm ordained with your church, can I perform marriages?

Also when you become ordained with us we send you complete information on the legal status of marriage laws in all the States of America. You may or may not be able to perform marriages in other countries. Always ask for the local Marriage Certificate of the couple (Man and Woman) before marrying anyone. 

Question #17:  As a minister in your church, can I do healing work with people who are sick?

A:  Yes, you can do spiritual healing work with the sick as long as you have the ability to do that and you do not diagnose or treat any disease.  You may serve as a conduit for spiritual/religious healing.  However, medical diagnosis and treatment are functions legally reserved for appropriately trained and licensed medical professionals.

A:  You may do counseling as a clergy person if you have the ability and/or training to do that in a competent manner.  Always ask the guidelines of your state. 

Question #19:  What is the position of Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem, Inc as to the State Mandatory Reporting?

A: Anyone who has concerns about a child’s welfare should make a referral to local authority children’s social care and should do so immediately if there is a concern that the child is suffering significant harm or is likely to do so.’ We urge our WMEK faith leaders to report suspicions of abuse, neglect or exploitation of a child or a vulnerable adult to law enforcement

It is not our job to investigate nor do we have the skills to do so. It is our job to get available resources to victims of child abuse to protect them and if possible, prevent further harm. To do this, we need the expertise of others beyond our faith community. God demand from us holiness and honesty, and God will help us to keep reach such a state. In any other case we maintain the confidentiality of pastoral communications.

It is composed of more than 200 pages of detail information, the learning of 613 Mitzvot and the learning of complete basics of Jewish Talmud and Mishna.
