Fuller’s new Certificate in Church Planting will be offered starting Winter Quarter 2015 (January-March). The two-year program will provide students with (1) a deeper theological understanding of the issues involved in church planting, (2) a broader perspective and exposure to the resources, models, strategies, and networks available for church planting, and (3) a practical support system as students progress through the program with the same group of students (a “cohort”), sharing experiences as they apply coursework to their individual church plants.
The six-course program is structured so that students can remain in their church planting ministries while they study. Each class will be taught in a hybrid course format (nine weeks online, one week on campus) by a faculty member as well as a practitioner who will 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.
