Liberty University’s Undergraduate Certificate in Christian Ministry is designed to instruct core biblical principles, theology and doctrine. The program will provide students a curriculum that increases their effectiveness as a servant of Christ. In addition, the certificate program’s education may enhance the student’s competitiveness for careers within the field.

To successfully complete the certificate, students will need to complete six required courses for a total of 18 credits. Some of the courses are Introduction to Christian Thought, Introduction to Christian Ministries, and Survey of Biblical Literature. Each full-time credit for the 2013-2014 academic year was $340. The program’s courses are eight weeks in length and may be completed entirely online.

Students will be instructed within a variety of biblical and ministry subjects. Course topics include theology of evangelism, Old Testament scripture, nature of tolerance, and apologetic methodology. Students will also learn to apply christian world views, analyze issues relating to biblical literature, and develop a youth ministry mission statement. In order to maintain effective church and adolescent ministries, the program will teach students to practically use biblical and ministry philosophies.

Students must complete all six of the courses at Liberty University with no letter grade of “D” or lower. The university also requires that all students must complete the program with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students within the certificate program will have complete access to Liberty University resources such as academic advisors, the online library, and the Online Writing Center.
