The certificate program is designed to educate and equip anyone involved in ministry — whether you’re a minister or pastor, on staff in the church, or working as a volunteer — for excellence in service to Christ through Christian ministry. Its educational platform provides an environment of spiritual fellowship and relationship that emphasizes unreserved commitment to the worship of God; submission to the authority of the Scripture; a life of personal holiness; the mission of the local Church; and the mission of penetrating the world with the Word of truth. Students receive instruction and direction in areas that will enable them to be more effective in helping to grow and develop the church. 

Through the College of Religious Studies Certificate program, University of Fort Lauderdale offers certifications in Theology, Church Administration, Christian Counseling, Pastoral Care and Counseling, and Multimedia — each designed to provide you with a solid Christian foundation and help you to become more intentional, more kingdom-minded, and more ministry focused as a leader in ministry.

All class instruction is conducted online over eight-week periods with flexible hours and is available at affordable tuition rates.
