Ministry Courses


Pastoral Studies

INSTRUCTOR: Pastor Gary Howard

Pastor Gary Howard has drawn from over 45 years of pastoral ministry in the development of a very practical course of study to help those that are presently involved in pastoring as well as those aspiring to pastor. This course covers the many areas of responsibilities one must fulfill in the role of a pastor as well as the qualifications and attitude necessary for being an effective pastor.

What Every Minister Needs to Know

INSTRUCTOR: Elder Kenneth Baglin

From conducting baby dedications to funeral services to everything in between, this course introduces students to the many responsibilities of a minister. With more than 50 years of ministry experience, this class provides practical instruction and situational learning to equip young ministers for the diverse roles of their calling.

New Testament Church Government

INSTRUCTOR: Pastor Gary Howard

This subject is one of the most important, yet misunderstood doctrines of the Bible. This class deals with the subject of God’s Government from the creation of the angels to the present time. It gives strong scriptural proof as well as historical evidence of the true Apostolic model of New Testament Church Government and an appeal to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.”

Ministerial Ethics

INSTRUCTOR: Elder Raymond Taunton

This class presents a Biblical and practical examination of the importance of personal character and ethics in a ministerial setting. Covering topics such as leadership transition and biblical stewardship, students will confront situations and issues common to a minister in order to determine what is proper and ethical.

  • Everything I learned in class is so immediately applicable to my current ministry work.
