Certificate in Biblical Studies


Having a biblical foundation upon which a pastor, elder or church leader can build an effective ministry is crucial. Sometimes, individuals are called to vocational ministry and have not completed a bachelor’s degree. Completing an undergraduate degree first simply to qualify for a seminary masters’ degree is not a good option for many. The 30-hour Certificate in Biblical Studies provides 10 excellent courses in Bible, ministry and spiritual life. Though the Certificate in Biblical Studies is not as thorough as the M.A. in Local Church Ministry nor as comprehensive as the M.Div., it is still an excellent combination of courses that will greatly assist those who minister in the local church.
