Truett Seminary's Certificate Program seeks to serve a wide variety of people with a variety of backgrounds and interests. To support the varied objectives of our students, we offer three different levels of achievements:
The Foundation Level courses form the core of Truett's Certificate Program and are designed to take approximately 16 to 18 months to complete. These courses work in unison to form a strong foundation of understanding within the Christian faith. They are appropriate for any adult, and upon completion of all six courses, students will receive a Certificate of Christian Foundation.
The Primary-level certificate is the central achievement that most Certificate students work toward. Building on the Certificate of Christian Foundation, a Primary-level certificate requires an additional four courses focused on application and deeper understanding. This level of certificate offers a variety of options, including two primary study tracks:
The Ministry track leads toward a Certificate of Ministry and is designed for students with a ministry calling. The Christian Studies track leads toward a Certificate of Christian Studies and is intended for non-ministers wanting to further their personal study without the pastoral emphasis of the Ministry track.
Certificate students may seek to achieve an Advanced-level certificate by completing an additional five courses. These five classes are typically selected from in-person Seminar Courses, but additional ministry concentrations are available. Students may begin accumulating these courses towards an Advanced-level certificate whenever they would like.
