About the Courses

Developed out of our Center for World Christian Studies, the Intercultural Ministry Certificate’s courses can be applied to a full master’s degree at North Park Theological Seminary. The certificate’s flexible course options—many are offered online or as intensive hybrid courses—allow for distance learning, and for a schedule that fits your needs.

This 12-credit program will provide you with the tools to equip your congregation to think, plan, and practice interculturally as part of its witness to the whole gospel “in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and the ends of the earth.”

Course Schedule

Choose from a variety of electives, including one travel course, to pair with our required course and make the certificate meet your ministry interest and needs.
