Ministry Foundations Certificate Program


210708 - Ministry Foundation Certificate Promo Mixdown

September 17, 2021 - April 30, 2022

The Ministry Foundations Certificate is a partnership between Willingdon Church and Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary. This fully accredited Master’s program would constitute up to one-third of a full Master’s degree. It includes four courses: 

•    Missional Discipleship 
•    Interpreting Scripture Today 
•    Christian Leadership Practices 
•    Pastoral Care. 

Each course will last for two months, but the on-site lectures for each will consist of only one weekend intensive, Friday evening and all day Saturday. The first course will begin in September and the last one will finish in April, 2022.

Covering foundational aspects of church ministry, the Ministry Foundations certificate would be suitable for lay workers and, for those considering vocational ministry, as a big step towards more specific training.
