Certificate and Advanced Certificate of Ministry Studies
Equipping women to serve and lead with confidence
Designed for women who are serving in churches or other ministry contexts as staff, ministry leaders, or lay leaders.
- Available online
- 12 hours
These certificates are comprised of courses from the SSSWP program and are aimed at women who are serving in churches or other ministry contexts as staff, ministry leaders, or lay leaders. As women have tremendous influence in the leading, discipling, teaching, and ministering to other women, it is important to be equipped biblically and theologically to serve confidently in today’s culture.
These certificate courses are offered in a 6-week format, in both residential and asynchronous online settings, at a reduced rate, and are not eligible to transfer into a degree program.
"From the days of Priscilla, Dorcas, Phoebe, and even Euodia and Syntyche, women have had great influence in the New Testament church. Today is no exception. Women are leading well as Bible Teachers, mentors, counselors, ministry leaders, and voices of wisdom."
- Terri Stovall, dean of women and professor of women’s ministries
