Certificate in Church Planting

Contact: [email protected]

United Theological Seminary’s Certificate in Church Planting (CCP) is ideal for pastors, church leaders and lay people involved in the leadership and ministry of a church plant. In two online courses, this non-degree certificate program will provide the foundations for successfully starting a church plant — from how to launch a church to how to build systems for growth and discipleship within a new church.

Online courses are offered in the fall semester (September–December) and spring semester (February–May). The fall course focuses on the process of launching a new church. The spring course explores the “post-launch” process of developing discipleship and community life in a new church.

Participants seeking non-degree certification will receive a Certificate of Completion upon finishing the two courses.


Are you called to plant?

United has several options available to those called to this innovative area of ministry. Which one is right for you?

In addition to the Certificate in Church Planting, we also offer a concentration in Church Planting, which can be added to a Master of Divinity or Master of Arts in Christian Ministries. For those interested in digging even deeper, there is the “ROOTED: Church Planting and Revitalization in our Diverse World” Doctor of Ministry Focus Group.
