This program equips you to become a leader in ministry. It can be completed in as little as one year in an online, asynchronous format.

You’ll understand, embody, and implement the tenets of historical Christianity in a mature, faithful, unifying, and society-transforming manner.

Your courses in pastoral care and Biblical ethics will equip you for challenging situations. You’ll learn to face challenges through the wisdom of scripture.

We’ll nourish your curiosity about the Bible and provide a foundation for wherever God leads you next. This program can be your stepping stone to Northeastern Seminary upon graduation.

Not sure where God is leading? Many adults have found that formal study of scripture in community with others offers vocational clarity on next steps.

This program satisfies many of the ordination requirements of denominations and churches. We can work with your denomination or church to determine how classes satisfy some of your ordination requirements.
