Certificate in Parish Life Ministries
College of Saint Elizabeth offers a Certificate in Parish Life Ministries for students and members of the church who are interested in learning about the roles of family guidance in the ministry and the roles of submission and servitude in the care and ministering of others. Lessons will involve teaching how spiritual transformation occurs through the ministering of needs across the family life spectrum and how to minister to others in an individual and small group level. Other topics include how to design and develop, organize, and lead ministries through development of family discipleship, and the growth of churches through families and small groups.
The concept of the program is shown through classes that demonstrate the roles and responsibilities as part of the pastoral duties in service to family needs. The curriculum consists of 24 credit hours of classes that include Christian Marriage and Family, Principles and Processes for Decision Making in Christian Ethics, and Identity and Pastoral Practice with the Living God in Foundations in Lay Ministry.
Students who successfully complete this program have the potential to display knowledge and understanding of the Bible, which contributes to the formation of a Christian worldview, intended to help the graduate learn to utilize the Bible for contemporary and cultural issues. Graduates should also demonstrate a competency in family needs and ability to serve others with hospitality and compassion and display the professionalism in oral, written, technology, and visual communications.
