Heritage Ministry Certificate I

Contact your admissions advisor

The Heritage Ministry Certificate offers an opportunity for those who currently serve their church in a paid, volunteer, or bi-vocational leadership role and desire to be theologically and practically equipped for life and ministry.

Throughout this five-course program, students will grow as they receive biblically sound, theological teaching from our faculty while completing hands-on, ministry-focused assignments. * The Certificate is also delivered online—meaning students can complete the program without leaving their local context.

This certificate will be the first of two that Heritage plans to offer, focused on encouraging those serving in the church who may feel a seminary education is out of reach and desire to be equipped theologically for a life serving the church.

*Note: Courses completed as a part of the Heritage Ministry Certificate will not qualify for earned credits towards a Master of Divinity, Master of Theological Studies or Graduate Certificate at Heritage Theological Seminary.
