Two letters of recommendation must be provided for a new applicant. Preferably the letters should be from leaders of ECFA members with some knowledge of the applicant organization and/or its leadership. Alternatively, the letters can be from leaders of non-ECFA member churches or parachurch ministries.
The individuals writing the recommendation letters should generally explain their relationship to the applicant organization or its leadership. Additionally, the letters should reflect their view of the integrity of the applicant organization and/or its leadership.
