Minister Certificate Program

Christian Ministry training is one of the most exciting and fulfilling adventures you will ever embark on. People often find themselves serving in various capacities in organized religion or informal ministries based on zeal or availability but have limited training.

Students will enjoy moving beyond basics and into an understanding of the power and excitement of Kingdom living. This course will help students be trained, shaped, and equipped to do the work of ministry.
