The Women's Ministries Leadership Certification program has come about because we realize the great need for the women of our church to develop skills that will enable them to serve in positions of leadership.
E. G. White reminds us that "There is a higher purpose for woman, a grander destiny. She should develop and cultivate her powers, for God can employ them in the great work of saving souls from eternal ruin." Evangelism p. 465
The curriculum for this program has been divided into eight subject areas. They are:
- History and Philosophy (HP),
- Biblical Studies (BS),
- People Skills/Personal Growth (PS),
- Speaking Skills (SS),
- Leadership Skills (LS),
- Writing Skills (WS),
- Nurture Projects (NP),
- Outreach Projects (OP).
Certification, Level 1, is available, FREE, on our website. Be sure to download the "Record Brochure for Levels 1-4" to help you understand the requirements that are needed. If possible, it is best to join with other women and take the seminars together.
Materials for Levels 1 through 4 are available through AdventSource. Phone Toll Free at 800-328-0525 or E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To receive your certificate after completing the required course work, send your record brochure (with checkmarks placed beside the seminars you completed) along with the initials of the presenter (if applicable) to:
