Community Services & Urban Ministry
The Community Services & Urban Ministry Certification Program: This community-based program equips participants to be engaged with critical service learning to create a sustainable impact in their communities.
The curriculum contains 15 modules with teaching notes and an accompanying Powerpoint presentation that instructors anywhere in the world can adapt and present to locals who desire to be better equipped to serve their communities. This curriculum lays the groundwork for comprehensive community-based ministry, where it be from a local church or from a nonprofit organization.
"This course was a great eye opener especially since I'm very interested in community service, disaster preparedness and assistance, etc. I have been encouraging others to take this course as well." - Donna C.
