Online Theology Certificate

AND JESUS SAID TO THEM, “GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.”
- MARK 16:15

 

With Concordia University Online’s flexible distance learning model, you take your calling as far as you’d like with three levels of education in the Lutheran faith.

Our three-tiered theology certification program is a 15- to 47-credit journey, and you decide how far you would like to go. The full certification provides a study of the Bible and Lutheran theology, a historical background of Christianity, and its place among other belief systems. Coupled with intensive scripture study, Concordia University Online provides a set of effective teaching and communication tools to help you lead and facilitate within the Lutheran Church.

The practical meets the academic with in-depth study in Lutheran worship, confessions, synodical structure, congressional organization, and leadership. Become certified in devotions, community outreach, visitation, and family ministry. This certification deems you eligible for call in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.

The Lay Ministry Program at Concordia University Wisconsin is affiliated with the Concordia Bible Institute, and the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
