In cooperation with Evangelical Seminary’s School of Lifelong Learning, Institute for Church Leadership offers a series of courses in Bible, theology, spiritual disciplines, evangelism, church history, missions, counseling and more. Anyone can benefit from these opportunities for spiritual enrichment and leadership development. Evangelical is pleased to offer these classes as a resource for building the Kingdom of God.

These non-credit courses are open to all, without any educational prerequisites. They are not seminary level courses and do not earn credit from Evangelical Seminary. The courses comprise the required training for those seeking the Local Elder’s License or Lay Preacher’s Certification in the Evangelical Congregational Church, and may be applicable to pastoral credentials for other denominations as well.

The course will serve as a general introduction to this part of Scripture, and provide a list of suggested resources for further study.
