Being a member of the Interfaith Ministers Association (IMA) provides a tangible way to ‘belong’ to our community of ministers, and a means of demonstrating our continuing commitment and support for the work of OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation.
All students and ordained ministers trained by OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation are automatically members of the IMA. Those who have a more overt and active public form of ministry can also apply to become a Registered Member of the IMA (or RIMA for short).
Full information is set out in our Community Handbook.
Membership of the Interfaith Ministers Association is also open to those who have been ordained by the One Spirit Learning Alliance or the New Seminary in the USA.
