Certificate in Advanced Pastoral Studies

How can advanced studies help your ministry?

Are you engaged in ministry and looking for ways to equip yourself with the skills needed to continue reaching your community? Biblical offers advanced studies that train men and women to become practical, advanced missional leaders in their churches and ministries. Regardless of whether you are a ministry professional or a lay leader, our courses will help you gain a robust knowledge of theology, engage culture, and gain the wisdom to become an effective leader.

Whether you are looking to develop a theology of cities based on Scripture, reinvigorate an established church or organization, or learn to interpret Scripture in a way that leads to effective communication, our advanced studies through our Certificate in Advanced Pastoral Studies offers exciting and challenging courses. At Biblical all of our courses are geared to incarnate and communicate the story of Jesus with humility and authenticity. We strive to foster an environment where our students will develop the commitment, skills, capacities, and transferable habits to be effective missional leaders.

Who is this certificate for?

The Certificate in Advanced Pastoral Studies is designed for students who have completed a graduate ministerial degree (e.g., MDiv, MA in Ministry) OR students who have completed an academic MA in religious studies and who have at least three years of ministry experience.

Why the CAPS program at Biblical?

This certificate program offers courses that are taught for application to ministry. It offers each student the opportunity to interact and dialogue with both faculty and fellow students in the program, enhancing both intellectual and vocational growth. In addition, this program provides an opportunity to continue study at the doctoral level.
