Certification Studies

Want to do more with your ministry?

Our six certification programs offer church leaders ways to
enhance skills and professional stature in ministries they love.

Making it is as simple as 1, 2, 3...

1. If you have a passion for ministry, we invite you to take a course in
one of our 6 certification programs to see how you like it.

2. It could lead to a professional certification that would enhance your
opportunities for lay ministry.

3. Or it could be the first step on the path to becoming ordained as a
Deacon, or as continuing education for those already ordained.

Which one are you passionate about?

Each of the following 6 programs of study involves a cluster of
5 courses and meets UMC certification requrirements.
