Certificate in Social Ministry and Church

LTSP offers a Certificate in Social Ministry and Church to persons who complete a set of eight courses at the seminary and who have also completed a degree of Master of Social Work (MSW). The Certificate may also be completed by those who can document some combination of academic credits toward an MSW and experience working in the field of social work. This study is intended to equip persons serving in the field of social work with the tools of theological critique and insight, which enhance their ministries in daily life. The Certificate may be pursued either concurrently with study for an MSW degree or subsequent to such study. Normally, Certificate study is pursued part-time.
