Professional Graduate Certificate

 

Professional Graduate

Certificate in Ministry

 

The Graduate Certificate is an excellent way to continue your theological training. The Professional Graduate Certificate Program has three unique benefits: 1) Early Entry: Students can begin work toward a Professional Doctoral degree even if they have not met the post-master's degree ministry experience requirement. The certificate program allows students to complete up to eleven hours, one workshop and three seminars, which can be transferred or applied toward a D.Ed.Min. or D.Min. degree, 2) Specialized Training: Ministry professionals who desire to improve or learn new skills can participate in seminars designed around ministry specializations. Each seminar challenges students with a balanced study of theories, principles, and practices, and 3) Personal Growth: Enjoy the exposure to new ideas, peer relationships, and cross discipline study.
