Expand the Reach of God’s Kingdom
The Church is a key part of God’s plan to bring about reconciliation. Why not invest your ministry in learning how to grow it?
Church planting is much more than building yet another church – it’s about bringing to the gospel to every part of the earth. In this program, you’ll get equipped with the tools you need to be an effective minister in church setting and much more.
The program is delivered in a blended, accelerated, cohort-based model that allows life-engaged adult learners to complete an advanced degree without uprooting life at home and work. Students participate in a learning community that blends online education with in-class residencies. A typical course is 6 weeks in length and is comprised of 5 weeks of online work and two days of residency.
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” – Romans 10:17

“I chose Capital because it was accessible, affordable, practical and theologically solid. It was a balanced, comprehensive program that fit my life. I was also learning things that I was able to apply immediately. I came out of the class on The Life & Work of the Leader and taught it to my elders within a week!”
