CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS

Our Certificate Program bundles courses into specialized areas of ministry. This enables students and/or schools to focus their studies, thereby receiving specialized training and equipping for practical ministry. Certificates of Ministry are earned by successfully completing the five courses listed within each particular area of study.

  1. Students may take as many certificate tracks during their course of study as desired to equip themselves with specialized training for practical ministry. Courses do not have to be completed in the order listed.

  2. Courses taken toward the completion of a certificate will also apply toward earning a degree. Successful completion of a second certificate will also qualify a student to apply for the first- year Diploma of Theology, etc.

  3. For selected courses in the Certificate Program to qualify toward the appropriate certificate, each student must attend all classes, hear all lectures, read the textbook, and successfully complete the examination. He or she must receive a passing grade on each course and maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher.

  4. Upon completion of the five courses in a certificate program, a Certificate Application Form must be submitted for each student who has completed the required courses. Please follow the instructions provided on the form. Submit one form for each certificate/degree requested to the CLST Global Office.

  5. The following list includes possible Ministry Certificates. However, schools and students can customize a certificate to meet a specific training need.


             Certificates of Ministry offer concentrated study in the following areas:
