Certificate of Ministry Development
The Certificate of Ministry Development (CMD) is designed to increase your ministry ability through the curriculum offered in the Master of Ministry program by allowing you to take classes without pursuing a degree. Those who have a bachelor's or master's degree may also take courses in this program for Continuing Educational Units (CEU).

When you enroll as a CMD student, you'll take master's level courses in six core areas to give you an increased understanding of the functions of ministry and how they impact your personal call to serve. Core course areas include: Theology, Biblical Studies, Preaching, Personal Growth, Leadership, and Ministry. Once you have completed the 10 courses required for this program, you will be awarded a "Certificate of Ministry Development."
