Does this count for college credit? 

No.  We have discovered that most ministry professionals only want to improve and the cost of a formal education doesn’t outweigh the benefit.  Our practical approach to ministry will prepare you for the challenges you will face.

What is a Learning Partner? 

A Learning Partner is a trusted person you select.  You can choose a colleague, friend, family member, work associate, mentor, supervisor or coach.  Your Learning Partner will receive the answers to your Reflective Application Questions.  It is, therefore, their job to encourage your growth after every module you complete. It is a required field in your profile because we believe we need people in our lives that continue to encourage our growth.  You can choose up to ten Learning Partners.  And, you can change your Learning Partner based on the content of the course you are taking.
