Undergraduate Certificate in Ministry


The Undergraduate Certificate in Ministry is designed to provide students with the opportunity to study in practical ministry-oriented areas of interest. It enables students to gain knowledge and skills for engagement in practical Christian ministry without committing to a long study program. It is ideal for those just starting out and looking to engage in a local ministry internship program with a study component in order to enhance their prospects of employment in a ministry setting, within a church or para-church context.
