The Foundations for Ministry course helps Certified Lay Ministers, first time pastors, and District Superintendent Assignment persons develop best practices for serving the local church in sermon writing, developing relationships with their congregation, building mission and vision.
This course is a blend of academic learning with practical on the job training. It allows the student to learn through both academic and hands on experience.
This class is also appropriate for pastors moving to new congregations.
The course focuses on a different aspect of ministry each month with all work and discussion forums taking place online, including monthly meetings. We will meet online using Adobe Connect. You will need a webcam.
