Certificate of Biblical Teaching & Preaching

Are you a pastor, ministry leader, or someone who is being called into Gospel ministry that wants to grow deeper in biblical knowledge? If so, then this certificate program is right for you! Our certificate program is designed to encourage leaders on all levels to prepare them to be a stronger teacher and preacher of the Word of God. 

We have designed the classes in this certificate program specifically to help build and strengthen the biblical foundation of pastors, ministry leaders, and especially those who are being called to the ministry in our churches. Because of this, we have several classes specifically geared toward a proper interpretation and expository approach when preaching or teaching.  Our instructors come from various backgrounds with many combined years of ministry experience throughout the Southern Baptist Convention.
