Ministry Supervision Certificates
Perhaps you have wondered about how to support and care for those serving others: an overworked pastor, parish minister, chaplain or deacon, etc. This program will give you the tools and competencies you need to provide such support and receive it yourself.
Certificates are available in two fields: pastoral care and homiletics.
A Schedule that Fits Your Needs
Two five-day seminars are held on the Saint Meinrad campus-one in January and another the following January, with graduation in May following the second January session. For the rest of the 15-month program, you do the work at your convenience and arrange your supervisory sessions to suit your schedule.
The cost of the program is $2,500, which includes seminar fees, housing and meals.
Graduate Credits Policy
Students in the Certificates in Ministry Supervision program have the option of earning 4 graduate credits for successfully completing the program. By the second January meeting of the supervision cohort, credit-seeking students must submit a course registration form to the registrar, registering for either 42:900 Certificate in Supervision-Homiletics or 43:900 Certificate in Supervision-Pastoral Care, for 4 credits.
There is no additional charge beyond the regular Certificates in Ministry Supervision program fee, but to earn the credits students must complete their assignments by the regular spring semester grade submission deadline.
