Vocational Ministry (VM)
The Vocational Ministry (VM) certificate program offers vital, graduate-level education beneficial for anyone serving or who wants to serve in Bible-based, Christ-centered ministry leadership. The curriculum includes foundational studies in key subject areas in conjunction with mentored instruction through common educational experiences shared among all TBS degree programs.
Fundamental skills and topics studied include hermeneutics, church history and theology, ministry leadership, public speaking/teaching, and spiritual formation, as well as a survey of all 66 books of the Bible and in-depth studies of numerous biblical books. Students earn 3-hour, graded credit by attending and participating in course sessions, turning in all regular assignments, and taking the final exam. By participating at this level, students can retain the option to apply their credit hours toward a graduate degree program should they desire to do so.
