What’s the Purpose of the Program?

The Certificate in Pastoral Ministry program is designed for pastors like you who want to strengthen their pulpit ministries through expository preaching but who do not intend to earn credit toward a college degree.

How Can a Pastor Earn a Certificate?

You can earn a Certificate in Pastoral Ministry by completing three courses in expository preaching and one course in biblical doctrine.
You can also earn an Advanced Certificate in Expository Preaching Certificate by completing six more expository preaching courses.

The courses have been designed with busy pastors like you in mind. Each course involves three class sessions. Class sessions are set for weekends (Friday night – Saturday afternoon) about once each six weeks. A pastor can earn the Certificate in Pastoral Ministry with an investment of no more than twelve weekends.
