Certificate of Completion
Upon completion of the 2-year program (classes + practicum), the graduate will receive a Northside Certificate of Completion of the Northside School of Ministry and be honored at a special graduation ceremony. If the student only intends to complete one year of the program, the student can receive a 1-year certificate.
The Northside School of Ministry programs are unaccredited, so course credits cannot be transferred to any other institution.
The graduate will obtain valuable Biblical and practical training which will be beneficial in any career pursuit. Your practicum experience can be added to your resumé and Northside can provide a reference to future employers for those who have successfully completed the course.
We believe that experience is as important as an education when it comes to getting the job you want. Many schools cannot offer the hands-on experience alongside the education. We're confident that your class studies, combined with a practicum with our experienced Northside ministry staff can help you to land a ministry job or internship.
Most people who have their first job in ministry serve in a church smaller than Northside. Expect that your first experience would be similar. We'll mentor you through the process, and help connect you with a church or non-profit ministry. You'll benefit from Northside's many connections and good reputation amongst the Christian community.
