For students seeking personal growth, spiritual formation and mature theological understanding to prepare or enhance the practice of ministry, Carey Institute offers studies in Christian Ministry at either a Certificate (undergraduate) level or Diploma (graduate) level.
At Carey, we believe that Christian leadership is about mobilizing and training all believers to participate fully in the ministry of the Body of Christ. For this reason, the Certificate/Diploma in Ministry is designed both for those in paid staff positions as well as those who volunteer their time in ministry.
Students have the option of taking their program on an individual basis or joining with a church-based cohort program which is part of Carey Institute’s Carey on the Road program. Both the Certificate or Diploma tracks involve the potential of hybrid and online courses, mentorship and practical ministry assignments.
CAREY ON THE ROAD:
Our Church Based Program is a unique opportunity that allows for a group of students from one church, or from a regional cluster of churches, to study theology together without leaving their contexts. These students are able to journey together through an entire Certificate or Diploma program. In each location, leaders and students participate in designing a program that reflects their needs and the realities of their context. Generally church-based classes take place on 3 weekends: Fridays 7-10 pm Saturdays 8:30-4:30 pm. Read more HERE.
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 that wants to follow Jesus.
