Between Church & Bible College...
When Sunday school isn't quite enough, but a formal Bible College or seminary program isn't currently the right fit, the Certificate Program might be exactly what you need. It is substantial study in a flexible format for anyone who wants to learn, but who does not have the finances, time, or interest to currently pursue a formal degree.
Certificate Program students include:
Candidates for ministry licensing
Sunday School teachers
Church volunteers of all varieties
Our goal is for men who are called to preach the Gospel to gain knowledge of the Christian faith and an increased effectiveness in ministering to others. Whether you desire to study the Bible more, feel called to serve the local church in volunteer or lay ministry, or want to pursue your faith more deeply, we want to help you with a program that can inspire, encourage, and equip you to proclaim the Gospel in an ever-changing world.
