Grow Stronger in Faith

During the Certificate Program, we’ll spend our time examining Scripture, studying history of doctrine in the church, and learning how to appropriately discern and critique today’s cultural moment. We’ll also consider together how Jesus invites us all into a life on mission, while gaining first-hand ministry experience through the NEXT Internship.
