Certificate in Christian Ministry
This course will help the minister who is challenged with public speaking and holding his audience.

Students must note that this is a short introduction experience to help them decide what they were called to be the ministry.

Certificate in Christian Ethics
There are Christians who do not seem to understand that similar to having standards in the secular arena, Christianity has its own ethics, some of which are similar to the worlds’, but at a higher level and requirements. Christians should be teaching the world about moral and godly standards.
In this course, the student will learn that he or she cannot and should not live the same life as the world. There are specific instructions on how we should live, dress, communicate; and by following them we will be in direct obedience to God’s will for us.
Certificate in Christian Counselling
Christian counselling is non-traditional counselling concerned with the total person: body, soul, and spirit. With secular counselling, the counsellor uses psychology as the authority in the session. There are similarities and differences with both Christian counselling and secular delivery and content.
The main aim of each perspective is the desire to help people overcome various difficulties, disappointments, problems, and failures in life and how to accept them as normal situations which come to all of us. They both seek to help people find the meaning to life, and to accept failures and losses, happiness and successes which will assist them in developing into healthy and well-adjusted individuals, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
Students will be given an introduction to Christian counselling, but this does not mean they are licensed to counsel. The course is ideal for pastors who do not wish to take on the entire program. We do not issue licenses.
