Commissioned is career-oriented assignment, and a part of what we call “Navigating the Call.” Commissioned personnel have had successful (Intern) service experience and are now seriously considering a long-term commitment to ministry. Pre-requisites for a Commissioned assignment are a satisfactory completion of an FX Intern assignment and all of its requirements. Commissioned personnel have more autonomy than Interns. With certain limitations, they can initiate projects, purchase property, and begin building a team, etc. Applicants who have previous field experience (2-3 years) or are transferring from another agency or organization with like-kind experience (2-3 years), and are fully-funded, can be considered for immediate assignment to the Commissioned category.
