Certificate Programs | McCormick Theological Seminary

Certificate Programs

McCormick Seminary is committed to the education of the whole people of God, providing opportunities and resources for all those involved in ministry and with a commitment to grow deeper in knowledge and action.

Continuing spiritual formation and growth, and ongoing ministerial skill development, are critical both for ordained clergy and others involved in the mission of the church.  Continuing education at McCormick follows the mission of the Seminary as a whole, drawing on the resources of the Reformed tradition while at the same time being intentionally ecumenical and cross-cultural. The result is a varied program focused not on a specific issue nor limited to a single audience, but on opportunities that cross cultural and academic boundaries and works ecumenically with other theological education institutions and church bodies. 

Continuing education at McCormick is a dynamic blend of individual lectures and series, short-term courses, and two certificate programs, the first in executive leadership and the second in environmental ministry and leadership. While the formats may be different, the content will challenge you in key areas and expressions of your faith while offering opportunities to grow deeper.
