Background: As a ministry leader serving in a world that has rapidly moved and changed through media shifts, cultural trends, and the aftermath of a global pandemic, you have been creatively adapting to a host of challenges and opportunities.

Calvin Seminary, in collaboration with the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, is pleased to offer a series of short term online courses that are designed to support your ministry leadership. These online mini-courses are centered around key ministry challenges you face today.

With a commitment of four hours per week for just three weeks, each class is designed to fit alongside the many time demands and commitments that you already have. Though some courses may include optional live discussion online, you won’t be required to be present for a session during a specific time. You can choose to audit the course or enroll for credit.
