Textbooks: Ministry Track

This study track, combined with the first, will expose you to every area of study that you would see in a traditional seminary education—except Greek & Hebrew. This set is Baccalaureate level, rather than Masters level, so it will not meet the requirements for Chaplaincy Board Certification, nor the expectations of large congregations for a senior pastor position; a traditional M. Div. would be required for those. While this second series completes the minimum educational requirements to apply for CUA ordination, there are still additional ordination requirements and interviews, please discuss those with your ordination committee representative.
