The Ministry Prep Certificate program is designed for individuals who are Alumni of the Ministry Preparatory Training & Bible College, for those who already have a biblical degree, and for students not pursing a diploma in ministry.
The purpose of the Certificate Program is to keep student’s spiritual growth active in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus. As iron sharpens iron, students’ participation in the Certificate program gives the Holy Spirit an opportunity to cultivate a deeper relationship with the Lord as well as a greater measure of Christian character.
As new classes are developed, the Alumni of the school may register for these classes, or simply return to repeat classes. New students with degrees from other colleges are welcomed to enroll in the certificate program.
Cost for the Certificate Program varies and may range from $50 for one course to $200 for full time trimester courses. Classes meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month during the hours of 1:15 to 2:30 pm.
