Fuller’s new, two-year Certificate in Church Planting provides students with (1) a deeper theological understanding of the issues involved in church planting, (2) a broader perspective and exposure to the resources, models, and strategies available for church planting, and (3) a focus on the spiritual formation of the planter that serves as the center and foundation of their mission and ministry.
The six-course program is structured so that students can remain in their church planting ministries while they study. Certificate classes will be taught primarily online by faculty members and practitioners who can provide support and mentorship through the duration of the program. For students who wish to later expand their study, courses from the certificate program can be credited toward a master's degree program in Fuller’s Schools of Theology or Intercultural Studies.*
If you are currently engaged in or sense a strong calling to church planting and seek a deeper theological and practical foundation for your work, this certificate program is ideal for you.
