The Level 2 Certificate of Ministry program offers Bible-based advanced discipleship and ministry training.
It is designed for:
1) Those who have completed a basic discipleship program (Level 1 or other) and who want to grow in their knowledge of God and His Word.
2) Those being equipped to serve the Church as small group leaders, teachers and elders. The program is equivalent to one year of study at a Bible college or institute.
Progressing Together Level 2 is divided into 11 course modules: 10 core courses + 1 ministry elective. Each course represents 60-90 hours of study, class-time and practical ministry activities and finishes with an exam. Students can complete the program through part-time study in 3-4 years while engaged in work and/or ministry activity or through one year of full-time study. A certificate of study is offered upon completion of the program.
During the course of their studies, the students will be trained in four areas: Bible, Doctrine, Practical Christian life and the Church, as well as a practical ministry skill. There are generally 9 lessons allocated to each course.
The courses are designed for use in group study: each participant prepares a lesson – taking 2½ to 8 hours according to the lesson activities – before the group meets together with a leader to discuss their answers and pray together. You may also study some of these courses by correspondence. Contact us at [email protected]
A manual is provided for the training of Level 2 Group Leaders, and most courses have their own leader guide manuals available. These and other resources are available for registered group leaders, upon request, through the Level 2 Teacher/Coordinator page.
