Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Christian Leadership Certificate Program

Who should attend?

The Christian Leadership Certificate program is designed for individuals interested in Christian leadership in the local congregation or in urban ministry outside the walls of the church. Some in the class are there for personal enrichment, and others are seeking transfer of undergraduate credits to a local college or university.

When and how do they meet?

Courses for the certificate are offered four classes per term. Three classes meet on Tuesday for approximately one hour each, and a three-hour class on Thursday. There are three terms per year with the normal calendar year starting with Term I in September.

Students participate in seminars in cohort groups/teams of up to 12 people twice each week on the campus of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Seminars are held from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays over a two-year period. Upon completion of the series of seminars, 36 CLC credits will have been attained and a Christian Leadership Certificate may be granted.

Is it affordable?

You pay $75 per credit hour for three or more credits and $150 per credit hour for less than three credits.
