Q:

What is a pastor installation service?

A:

A pastor installation service is the ceremony that recognizes a minister as the new pastor of the church. The formal service is held within the church with the other members present.

Installation of a pastor differs from the local ordination of a pastor, as installation does not limit the pastor to the church in question. When a church locally ordinates a pastor, the pastor is recognized by the NACCC as the minister of a specific church. This recognition does not extend to the minister's services at other churches. A pastor's license can also be awarded, and it grants the individual the ability to minister to churches while still in the seminary.
