Where is the program located?

In Fall of 2019 we are launching new cohorts in Los Angeles and New York.

CONTACT US to express your interest in joining a cohort in your area.

You must attend the monthly cohort meetings in person.  Most participants live near the cohort cities, but a few travel to the monthly meetings.  We would welcome you into the group either way.

How much does the Certification Program cost?

The program cost is generally $2,495, but due to a generous grant, we are able to reduce the price for everyone to $1,495 at this time.  Payment can be made as a lump sum (with a 5% total discount), or via deposit & monthly payment plan.

How does the monthly payment plan work?

You pay an initial deposit of $395, and the rest is divided evenly into 11 monthly payments of $100.  The monthly payments begin on the 5th of the month of the first class.  (Students who wait until the deadline to pay their deposit should be aware that their first monthly payment will be due very soon thereafter.)

How long is the training day each month?

Classes are 5-6 hours and take place during the evening.  Contact us to find out the class meeting dates and time for your city.

Can you help me talk to my pastor & potential donors?

Yes, we can provide you with a letter for you to use to communicate with pastors, donors, and others about the value of the program, and ask for their support.

Do I have to attend each class?

The program is a 12-month certification program.  Each month’s course is a unique subject and is self-contained. Absenteeism and tardiness are strongly discouraged.

What will my certification mean?

Your 12-month training program will give the youth worker practical skills to operate in ministry at a higher level.  Although our program is not an accredited program transferrable to a university, it is the best training a Youth Pastor, Director, Leader can receive.

Do I need to purchase books and supplies for this program?

No. The books and supplies you will need are all a part of the program cost. Through this program, you will receive resources that will be beneficial to you in ministry and leadership.

What if I don’t live near Los Angeles or New York?
