Press release from Wartburg Theological Seminary
Wartburg Theological Seminary has announced the offering of a new certificate program; the Certificate in Theology and Congregational Leadership has been created to meet the needs of those who want to strengthen their ministry leadership. This program was designed especially for the enrichment of church members. Dr. Craig Nessan, Academic Dean of Wartburg Seminary, says of the new program, “One of the new populations with hunger for in-depth theological education are active members of congregations. The certificate courses offered by Wartburg Theological Seminary address this need with high quality content, taught by the seminary faculty. We love teaching members of congregations who are eager to go deeper.”
The program consists of twelve courses, combining foundational subjects such as Bible, theology, and church history, with two courses in the area of specialty. The program is completed through a combination of online and intensive on-campus courses, allowing students the flexibility to work at their own pace, taking one, two, or three courses at a time.
The Certificate in Theology and Congregational Leadership joins two other certificate programs already offered at Wartburg Seminary: the Certificate in Town and Country Church Leadership and Certification in Youth and Family Ministry.

Wartburg is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and educates women and men to serve the church’s mission as ordained and lay leaders.
