The Certificate Program in Christian Ministry (CP) is a non-degree course of study that provides a basic theological education suitable for both lay and ordained church leaders. Designed to be completed in two years, the program is offered in English & Spanish online. Candidates for admission need only to hold a high school degree or its equivalent, although many in the program have already completed college or even graduate programs. Classes are online, however our main site in Springfield, Massachusetts offers courses in person. The online courses include specific times for students to interact with the faculty via SKYPE. The curriculum covers the basic theological disciplines of Biblical, historical, theological and practical studies, and all of the classes are taught by graduates of Accredited Seminary programs.
