Calendar & Time Commitment

2021-2022 Term

Starts Thursday, August 19, 2021 and concludes on May 5, 2022.  The class calendar is coordinated with local school schedules for spring/fall breaks and holidays.

2021-2022 Detailed Class Schedule available soon.

Time Commitment

Beyond the 3 hours of class, expect 4-8 hours of homework each week.  Much of this is reading, workbook, class presentations, and Bible study.  Completion of the program is based on class participation and homework completion, rather than a letter grade.

Students are to complete 100 hours of ministry service as their practicum to receive valuable hands-on experience and training in a specialized area of ministry.  Service hours can be completed at Northside, another church, or even a non-profit Christian ministry.  Scheduling is determined by the supervising minister/director.
