National Certificate Program in Youth Ministry Studies (NCP)

YM Opp Adults

NCP – Fall 2020 – Info for Publicity and Registration

The Youth Ministry Division is pleased to announce that the National Certificate Program in Youth Ministry Studies 2020 courses will be offered as a blended learning program.

The traditional courses (2 days of in-person instruction for each course) have been re-configured to allow for a combination of live instruction and online courses. The learning from 2 traditional courses is done through 2 live courses and 1 online course.

Live courses are 7 hours of instruction spread over three days. They are done in real-time using all the features of a Zoom classroom to engage participants in the learning process (since we cannot gather in person).

Online courses are asynchronous, meaning you participate on your own schedule. This course content is provided over a four-week period, with approx. 2 ½ hours of participation each week.

Foundations for Ministry Leadership
September 28, 29, 30 at 6:00 – 8:20 pm
