Bible Certificate Program

Overview

Our Bible Certificate Program is the perfect place to add or start your ministry training. During the Certificate journey, students will gain a perspective of the Bible as a whole, its place in culture and history, and its relevance for life today.

Students will gain a strong foundation for leading and teaching persons of all ages, as well as being prepared for more effective Christian leadership at home, family, church, community, and even career. Lastly, students will engage in a vibrant community with highly skilled instructors and passionate co-learners and gain confidence for serving in ministry and ministry leadership.
