To prepare students for congregational leadership or leadership in non-profits or other agencies, the Seminary offers the Graduate Certificate in Missional Leadership. Women and men take seminary classes in church history or theology, the Bible, contextual analysis, and missional leadership.

Missional Leadership certificate grads may elect to later complete the Seminary’s Master of Divinity or Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies degree program. Additionally, the Certificate in Missional Leadership is ideal for persons serving churches and non-profit organizations involved in mission work. Students receive broad preparation in evangelism and are therefore equipped for international missions. 

Completing the Certificate in Missional Leadership

Taking two seminary classes per semester, the certificate can be completed in one year. Students may also elect to take one course per semester and complete the program in two years. For those taking evening courses, the Missional Leadership program can be completed over two academic years. This flexible certificate program easily fits students’ busy schedules. 

Whether you already have a master’s degree or you’re new to seminary, the Graduate Certificate in Ministry is a great way to expand your theological education.
