Clergy credentials are important for a matchmaker minister. The clergy credentials through Christian Leaders Alliance give you more credibility in three tangible ways.
The clergy credentials indicate you have studied and completed courses which indicate you have competencies in areas directly related to matchmaking. The six matchmaker programs have different study requirements.
The clergy credentials require that you must be recommended by others locally who testify that your life and reputation are in harmony with your role as a clergy leader.
The clergy credentials hold you to a standard of confidentiality. When you work with clients, they feel more comfortable that everything you talk about in the matching journey is confidential. That confidentiality privilege is a clergy privilege that comes out of a clergy credentialing program.
