The Online Certificate Program offered through Baylor’s Truett Seminary is designed for church members and leaders who desire more depth in their Christian life or ministry.

Between Sunday School and Seminary…

When Sunday school isn't quite enough, but a Master of Divinity isn't the right fit, the Online Certificate Program might be just right. It is substantial study in a flexible format for anyone who wants to learn through a seminary, but who does not have the finances, time, or interest to pursue a master’s degree.

Certificate Program students have included:

  • Bi-vocational pastors
  • Lay-ministers
  • Cowboy church pastors
  • Candidates for ministry licensing
  • Church leader-development programs
  • Deacons
  • Sunday School teachers
  • Church volunteers of all varieties
  • Youth ministers
  • Children’s ministers

Our goal is for anyone to gain knowledge of the Christian faith and an increased effectiveness in ministering to others. Whether you desire to study the Bible more, feel called to serve the local church as a pastor/minister/volunteer, or want to pursue your faith more deeply, we want to help you with a comprehensive program that is tailored to your calling and desires.
