Have you ever wanted to earn a certificate in children’s ministry? Have you dreamed of deepening your skills and foundations as a children’s and family ministry leader? Do you feel the call to greater leadership in your local church but lack the confidence to move forward? You’re in good company.

Over the years, the Cory Center (a project of Bethel Seminary) has worked with the International Network of Children’s Ministry to create a children’s ministry certification program. Having graduated nearly 100 students from this elite program, we have learned how to create community and invest in leaders by combining in-person classroom experiences with a robust online learning platform. But this summer we met with the team at INCM to go further.

What could we dream together? How could we craft a learning experience that would impact even more children’s and family ministry leaders while maintaining our academic standards and relational community? Together we created Engage.

Engage is a program crafted for children’s and family ministry leaders looking to advance their ministry career and deepen their knowledge and experience. By combining Bethel Seminary faculty alongside the International Network of Children’s Ministry, Engage helps kidmin leaders grow relationally, spiritually, and academically. Upon completion of the program, graduates receive a formal Children’s Ministry Certificate they can leverage into a Masters Degree at Bethel Seminary.

Engage gives you long term value. By combining the 100-year evangelical training history of Bethel Seminary with the nearly 40 year legacy of INCM, we provide a children’s ministry certificate that will stand the test of time.

Learn more about Engage today because space is limited. This is not a program for hundreds of students, but for an intimate group of committed leaders. If you’ve been dreaming of how to take the next step in your ministry leadership, it’s time to check out Engage.
