Certificate in Christian Ministry

A program designed for Christian leaders wanting to improve their ability to serve in local congregational ministry.

The Certificate in Christian Ministry (C.C.M.) follows after the Certificate in Biblical Studies and may be taken concurrently with the Bachelor of Religious Studies program. It may also be taken by students who have completed the Graduate Certificate in Biblical Studies. The C.C.M. requires 12 semester hours of prescribed credits taken at NationsUniversity. These 12 hours are also applicable to the B.R.S. program courses but not to any graduate program. Transfer credit cannot be substituted for these Certificate courses.

This program is designed for individuals wishing to improve their abilities to serve in local congregational ministry. After establishing strong biblical foundations in the Certificate in Biblical Studies, students will learn about ethics, family systems, and local ministry.
