The following certificates are available to be offered throughout the Southeast: Biblical Ministry Certificate, Biblical Teaching Certificate, Christian Education Certificate, Church Planting Certificate, Pastoral Ministry Certificate, and the Pastoral Ministry Certificate in African American Church Studies.

The seminary is accredited to offer these courses in multiple places. In short, after going through an approval process, we can offer the certificate classes in most churches or associational offices. We have some basic requirements for offering a new certificate:

  • We need a place to meet. Many of the certificate courses are offered in churches or associational offices.
  • We need a group of interested students. Normally, we would like to have 10-15 interested participants to guarantee the viability of the program.
  • We need qualified teachers. Since these are fully accredited courses, we use teachers that have a master's degree and 18 hours in the area being taught. Most teachers have at least a Master's of Divinity from an accredited seminary.

If you are interested in finding out more about offering a certificate in your church or association in Georgia or Alabama contact Dr. Peter Kendrick at pkendrick@nobts.eduor 770-321-1606.
