Two-Year Ministry Certificate
The Pastoral Leadership Major will give you the tools you need to be an effective Christian leader. The skills you need to influence the world for Christ are the same whether you'll be a CEO, teacher, or pastor! You’ll learn these versatile skills in the first year of the program. If you decide to go into vocational ministry, your second year will teach you the specific skills you need to be an effective Church leader.
Leadership at its core is a decision to reject current reality and fight for change. Pastoral Leadership is learning to bring about that change by caring for people in the way Jesus modeled for us.
