“Carey on the Road” is the Carey Institute’s initiative to provide theological education to the whole people of God, within the local church context. Our church based program is a unique opportunity that allows for a group of students from a cluster of churches, to study theology together without leaving home.
The Carey Institute offers a ten-course undergraduate Certificate in Ministry (CMin). These courses may also be taken at the Diploma in Ministry (graduate) level. The courses are practical, contextual and affordable. They are intended for men and women, new Christians, weary Christians, urban, rural, singles, couples, immigrants, employed, under-employed – everyone who wants to follow Jesus.
