The Mercy Seat Ministerial FellowshipProviding Spiritual Covering and Accountability


Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is TMSMF?

A: TMSMF is an acronym for The Mercy Seat Ministerial Fellowship. TMSMF is the spiritual covering for pastors that choose to officially link arms and sit under the leadership of Bishop Eric McClellan and be in covenant relationship with him and his ministry


Q: How can I become a TMSMF member?

A: Must be a senior pastor actively pastoring a church. You can go online and read about TMSMF after you select TMSMF under “Home Page at the bottom left." Download the application, print it and submit the application profile with the mentioned requirements (church's mission and vision statement, first of the tithe/offering).


Q: Will I be mentored by Bishop McClellan if I become a TMSMF Member?

A: Yes you will, it will be individually and collectively.


Q: The tithe/offering, is it from the church or the pastor?

A: The tithe/offering is from the pastor’s salary. We are a covering for the pastor, not the church.


Q: I am looking for a church home in my area or I am moving to a new location. Can you recommend a church that I can attend?

A: It is not the practice of TMSMF to recommend any one church over another for attendance. It is the preference of TMSMF that you allow the Holy Spirit to help you locate a place of worship. We do recommend that you visit churches and ask other practicing Christians in your area where they attend church. We realize this process can take some time, however whatever we recommend may not fulfill what God has in store for you or it may not be the location where He wants you serving. God wants you where you can be involved!
