In response to an increasing demand for high quality ministry with preschoolers, children, and their families, the Divinity School developed the Preschool and Children Ministry Certificate Program which began in 1999. This programis designed to equip church staff ministers and volunteer leaders with the knowlege, skills, and values needed to design church programs and ministries to reach and nurture preschoolers, children, and their fmailies.
Participants in this program enroll in the Divinity School through the regular admission process as a special (non-degree seeking) student. The Certificate in Preschool and Children's Ministry can be earned on its own or as part of a Master of Christian Ministry or Master of Divinity degree.
