UGST Certificate Program
Urshan Graduate School of Theology has had a certificate program for the last three years. These classes are held in individual churches and districts as requested by the pastor or district official. These classes are developed according to the needs and interest of the invitee.
The Northeast Regional Training Center in New Jersey offers the certificate program by providing students the opportunity to take classes on a monthly basis. They offer both a Level 1 and Level 2 certificate in Ministerial Studies upon completion of 10 courses in each level. The courses offer intense Biblical Studies with practical ministerial application. A typical class is conducted on Friday night and Saturday. Upon completion of the 10 hours of instruction UGST issues a certificate of completion to the student.
Churches and districts may offer a single class or a sequence of classes depending on the needs of the church or district.
Quality teaching is through UGST faculty or guest speakers who specialize in the assigned topics.
The cost of an on-site course is only $125 per student/day. Additional resources may be required for each course. Courses currently taught through the certificate program are:
- Counseling in the Church
- Studies in Theology
- Studies in the Godhead
- Old Testament
- Mission of the Church
- Pastoral Care
- Leadership in the Church
- Church Growth
- (Other topics are available)
UGST is also the education arm of the LIFE Chaplain training program.
