Charismatic Episcopal Church

The International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church, is a Convergence Church (Where the Traditions of the Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Communions of The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ is intertwined! Simply put, a Church that Advocates Christian Reconciliation!). This Communion was started in June 26 1992 by a group of Charismatic, Pentecostal, Evangelical, Wesleyan and “Third Wave” Pastors who heeded the CALL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT for Christian Unity! Our Church is called Episcopal, Because it is governed by Bishops (Episkopos in Greek)… Our Apostolic Succession (Legitimacy of our Bishops) was CONFIRMED AND RECEIVED from three Churches, The Free Church of Antioch (1992), the Episcopal Missionary Church (1993) and the Brazilian Catholic Apostolic Church (1997, this Church was founded by the Former Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Botucatu and of Maura, His Excellency. Bishop Carlos Duarte Costa) Our Hierarchy (Order of Church Governance/STEWARDSHIP): Patriarch (Greek for Pope, He is the Presiding Bishop for our International Communion ) Territorial Archbishop (Presiding Bishop (Primate) for Our Continental Church ex: Asia, North America, South America, Africa, Oceania, Eastern Europe, Western Europe) National Archbishop (Presiding Bishop For our National Church) Provincial Archbishop (Presiding Bishop for our Provincial Church/Ecclesiastical Province) Diocesan Bishop (Presiding Bishop of our Diocesan Church) Auxiliary

Answer by Ollie
The charismatic movement is a movement within the Episcopal Church, which in turn is a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Episcopalians are Christians.

Charismatics are followers of Jesus who place a special emphasis in their worship lives on the charisms — the gifts — of the Holy Spirit described in the early chapters of the Acts of the Apostles and elsewhere in the New Testament. These gifts include many things, such as preaching, teaching, service, hospitality, prophecy, healing, speaking in tongues, and leadership.

You should inquire of your local Episcopal Church’s priest about entering the process to prepare for ordained ministry.

Generally speaking, you need
participation in the “postulant” process under supervision of your local bishop.
a bachelors’ degree
three years in a seminary or divinity school to get an M Div degree
a season working as a chaplain intern in a hospital.
some time working as an intern in a parish.

Blessings on your path!
