Certificate of Ministry
The Certificate of Ministry (C.Min.) is granted for demonstration of initial competencies associated with being a minister of the gospel (pastor, church planter, missionary) and other ministry leaders.
A Portfolio System is used to support development and provide evidence of competencies related to the program. The following is a list of competencies that must be demonstrated in a portfolio and validated by Antioch School faculty.
At the heart of each Antioch School program is an emphasis on life and ministry development, not a set of courses. Further, the training modules themselves are not just an accumulation of isolated academic experiences, but development opportunities that are interwoven with the unique needs of individuals and particular ministry situations in a manner that support comprehensive growth.
General objectives of all Antioch School programs:
- Comprehensive development in character, skills, and knowledge for effective ministry.
- Life development and lifelong learning orientation.
- Recognition of and participation in the centrality of the local church in the plan of God.
- Ability to master biblical content, benefit from significant contributions of scholars, and build strategic models of ministry accordingly.
- Develop a foundational understanding through an integrated core of interdisciplinary studies.
The general objective of Ministry Degrees is to help train those who desire to be part of a leadership and ministry team that is one-minded in ministry, vision, and philosophy. Out of this team would come those who commit themselves long term to local church leadership or those who desire to train to be part of a missionary team involved in planting or establishing churches in other areas.
