Ordination within the CBAC is a recognition of the call upon the life of a person to pastoral or specific ministries usually associated with full time vocational ministry. Historically, this call has been recognized within Baptist life by the setting apart of that person in the act of ordination which is officially carried out by the local church that affirms that call.

The few days prior to Oasis 2017, candidates for ordained ministry met with the Examining Council to determine their readiness for vocational ministry and full accreditation with the CBAC. They have been released to their churches to hold a service of ordination for the candidates.
