The Certificate Program in Christian Formation is designed to meet the needs of youth ministers and Christian educators, who seek to deepen their understanding of the Christian theological tradition. Designed as continuing education for practitioners in the field, the program empowers students to be more able ministers.

Dr. Scott Bader-Saye: Money, Boredom and Fear: Moral Formation and Youth Culture
The Rev. John Lewis: Presenting Everyone Mature in Christ: New Testament Approaches to Moral Formation in the Modern World.
[The program] Gave me tools to work within the challenging environment of a parish church.
[I received] a stronger vision of hope for our church as a whole.
This course was inspiring and renewing for my ministry. It gave me a much clearer understanding of some of the dynamics of leadership in my congregation. The liturgical formation was quite powerful. By the end of the week, I had a much deeper understanding and appreciation for the Divine Service and had recovered much of my early joy as a Christian.
I came away from the course energized and with renewed enthusiasm for what I do.
It was great to be right on campus, and the food was absolutely fantastic! I felt quite cared for.
