Certification Program in Church Business Administration
The candidate for certification should first consult with the Center Director, submit the proposal on the approved proposal form, and receive written approval for the proposed project before commencing. In certain cases, the Director may suggest consulting an advisor from among the seminar leaders for technical advice. Then final approval comes from the Certification Center Director.
Guidelines for Project:
The purpose of the project is to integrate and make practical application of what you have learned in the seminars.The project should exemplify your own practice of church business administration and your theology and should meet a practical need of the church where you work.
