The Graduate Certificate in Campus Spiritual Leadership has two tracks for training leaders in campus ministry: Christian campus track and public campus track.
The Christian campus track is designed for professionals with responsibility for some aspect of the spiritual growth of students on Seventh-day Adventist academy or college campuses. Typical applicants would be campus pastors, chaplains, Bible teachers, principals, residence hall deans, and student services directors. The public campus track is designed for those who want to minister to Seventh-day Adventist students and others attending public universities. Typical applicants would be pastors, youth pastors, and lay leaders of youth and young adult ministries in local congregations near public universities. Either track would be appropriate for conference and union youth and education directors.
The curriculum for this graduate certificate was developed with the assistance of the Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries and Education Department of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the Education and Youth Ministry Departments of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists. Courses will be taught by faculty in the Religious Education and Youth Ministry programs of the Seminary and professionals who are currently involved in campus ministry on Christian and public campuses.
