This assignment is the application of what the candidate understands to be the reason God is ordaining them to one of His ministry offices. The praxis defines what purpose will the candidate serve in God’s kingdom, how the candidate will achieve that purpose, what will that purpose look like in action, how the candidate will maintain and sustain it, and what kind of fruit will it bring the Lord Jesus in His redemption and recovery effort? The candidate must create an environment in which he or she is able to turn theory into practices and showcase the ability to perform the knowledge received in the candidate’s course of study.

The candidate must select willing participants to contribute to their research who he or she will then observe and assess throughout the project to determine the effectiveness of their assignment and effort to produce it. From here the candidate will draft his or her conclusions on the process, the results of this experience and what was achieved and learned from it.  These requirements will be completed in 4-stages throughout the credentialing program.

Final Portfolio, Defense & Dissertation

Final Portfolio of Office

The MCP Ministerial Portfolio begins in the student’s orientation period and is maintained throughout the entire MCP training experience. To this end, the instructor[1] conducts periodic updates, reviews and evaluations of the document’s progress at scheduled times throughout their readiness term. There are many elements in the portfolio that exemplify the student’s work, achievements, and competencies. All three are the core aims of the project. Among these are the training process’ standardized forms to be used to prepare course assignments. Samples of the student’s most satisfactory ones must be included in the documentation[2]. The MCP Ministerial Portfolio requirement is to achieve two extremely fundamental objectives for the MCP learner. The first is extensive presentation of the student’s knowledges and the intelligences gained from the program. To exhibit these, students assemble a variety of documents prepared and submitted to their instructors throughout the course. They compose these to synthesize what the training taught and contrast it to what they learned and are now capable of doing as a result of passing successive phases and stages of the training. The portfolio submitted must reflect the student’s ministry awareness. That means the student must include sufficient samples of his or her actual ministry call and its place in the fivefold, the Lord’s kingdom and His ecclesia. The particular mandate, mission, vision and entity the Lord appointed the student must show itself in the final product. Language, illustrations, scenarios, and other presentative content is to portray these as the student received them from the Lord and intends to apply them in active ministry.

The portfolio has two formative goals. The first is confirmation of the student’s ability to communicate the education received in multiple ways, and to a diversity of learners. This is the first segment. The second goal is set in the second segment. It is the action part of the portfolio. At this stage, the goal is to evidence the students’ capacity to use all they learnt in various ministerial contexts, environments, and entities. In this segment, the highest purpose is pragmatism. Did students absorb the training well enough to implement it for their own ministries and to teach others how to use it effectively? This portfolio segment showcases the student’s methods, innovation, ingenuity and the like as they reveal their problem solving, critical thinking, vision casting, and implementation abilities. Successful portfolios highlight how effectively the student can identify basic human resources, and create, implement, monitor and adapt a ministry model or undertaking to real world environments. Both of these aims are essential to a portfolio’s acceptance and the student’s advancement in the graduate candidacy process.

Portfolios are to be chronologically organized, professionally typed and illustrated, bound and presented. Preparers should remember that the completed document should extend beyond graduation to be used as a working manual that governs the discharge of their ministry assignment. In respect to the minister’s commission or mandate, all portfolios are to exemplify the student’s mastery of the assignment the Lord delegated. They are to produce a cohesive understanding of how their ministry commission or mandate and its dispensation are to be applied to their indicated ministerial sphere. In addition, the portfolios explanation sections are to set forth in prudent ways the best strategic concepts they have for employing MCP’s ministry concepts to their planned execution of the office in full time service to the Lord. Moreover, the portfolio should express the student’s improved perception of ministry and how theirs will suit the modern church and the contemporary Christian’s kingdom outlook. The portfolio as a whole must show how knowledgeable the student is of cultural trends and how it figures into their future ministry, along with the best tools and methods to use to promote God’s truth and counteract cultural norms that strive to subvert or refute it.

The portfolio is compiled into a single document that contains the following:

    • The Overview of the Praxis Assignment
    • Understanding of the Candidates Vision, Mantle and Mandate
    • History of Office Education, Training and Readiness
    • Impact, Significance and Results
    • Conclusions and Defense

Ordination and Appointment:

The final step for the candidates once all other requirements have been met is official ordination into office. There are two options for ordination:

    • Ordination with Appointment
    • Ordination without Appointment

With appointment means that students will be official appointed to office position with New Era Apostleship Restitution as a Global Prophetic Company Prophet. This means candidates will serve in an office capacity under these auspices.

Without Appointment means candidates will receive an official ordination from Price University that allows candidates to be appointed to any organization or institution as ordained or commissioned officer.
