CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

 

Certificate Program (C.Min.)

The premiere program of Covenant Bible Institute is our (1) one-year Certificate program.  The Certificate Program is a thirty (30) Credit Hour program of study offering a Certificate in Ministry (C.Min.) upon completion.  This program is designed to assist the student in the paradigm shift from traditional church structure to the open/house church paradigm and to provide in-depth study of the Word of God for the serious bible student to sharpen ministry skills for service in house/open church settings or in the traditional church structure.

 

In the event that a student decides to continue his or her education in the Associates Degree program, all Certificate Credit Hours may be applied toward the higher degree.

 

 

Certificate of Ministry (C.Min.)

 

The Certificate of Ministry program concentrates on the paradigm shift between the institutional church and open church principles utilized in the house church movement (see I Corinthians 14:26).  This program is designed to equip saints to make the leap into the reality of the priesthood of every believer, focusing upon the practical how-to’s and responsibilities of life outside the confines of the traditional church structure.  This program, as is the case with the entire curriculum of CBI, is designed to help minimize the clergy-laity distinction.  This program is an excellent spiritual foundation for the student planning to pursue non-religious degrees in another college/university.
