An online Church Planting Certificate from an accredited seminary will equip ministers and lay people who are interested in (or involved with planting churches) the confirmation of their calling, wisdom to know which city to plant, and a healthy foundation to establish a church that can flourish in today’s culture.
Students who complete the certificate program will be encouraged in spiritual growth at an individual level so they can learn to rest in Christ through the unique difficulties that surround church planting. Studies typically include missional training that equips students to take the gospel to the culture and city of their calling. The program usually also emphasizes biblical theology as a foundation for church planting so the student can better understand the heart of God for the church.
An accredited online certificate in Church Planting allows students to take seminary-level graduate courses from the comfort of their home and remain in their current work without moving their families. It also provides them with the continued fellowship and support of their local church. Certificate course credits from an accredited theology or divinity school may transfer if the student wishes to pursue a graduate degree at the seminary level.
