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 10 classes without pursuing a degree. These courses are ideal for fulfilling Lifelong Learning Hours or Continuing Educational Units (CEU).

When you enroll as a CMD student, you will attend 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 attended the 10 courses required for this program and completed the required book reports on the texts used in these courses, you will be awarded a "Certificate of Ministry Development."
