After receiving your Certified Church Administrator designation, The PT&S Committee requires that you complete its retention program every four years in order to maintain certification.  This must be documented through our national office and in compliance with our continuing education requirements.  If you hold a CCA designation and no longer work in a local congregation or denominational setting, you may retain your certification if you complete all continuing education requirements. If you do not meet the requirements, you will receive a letter of instruction to cease using the designation.

Retention requirements include:
  1. Complete and submit retention application with application fee. National Church Network member fee: $75.00 non-member fee: $200.00

  2. Earn 4.0 CEUs during the four-year period (40 hours)

  3. Submit recommendation forms completed by the senior minister/supervisor and one lay worker/co-worker

  4. Submit the self-reflection form to the national office
