TECU Professional Ministry Certification Courses (PMC)

Holy Spirit led certification tracks designed to move you at His pace with exciting topical writing that will open the eyes and the heart to Christianity, Faith, Practice, and Your Calling to serve the Kingdom as it is intended.

Trinity Evangelical Christian University’s Professional Ministry Certification Courses are designed with the active Christian, seeking their place in their calling in mind.

Our “experts” from both academia and the ministry / mission field have come together to create these exciting certification programs combining the very best in texts, both contemporary, modern and classic, foundational, that are available most anywhere, with the tried and true method of old – that immerses the student in the content with a purpose that encourages explorationinterpretationcritical analysis, and life application to very real needs, and issues for today’s church, ministries, ministers, missions, missionaries, and even the lay workers of the Kingdom. 

All this is accomplished through the leading of the Holy Spirit and the Author’s intent for the text. There are no scheduled dates or times. After you have been accepted and enrolled, you simply purchase the books and begin by moving through the assigned texts one after the other, writing about what you are exposed to, each building upon the last. We are confident that you will find most of it exciting, thought provoking, worthy, and foundational. At the completion of your study program you will have amassed a writing project that covers each text in it’s entirety that includes, the concepts of the text, your interpretation, and an evaluation for both your personal life and ministry application.

But, even as a “self study” program, TECU does not leave you on your own…

TECU has methods designed to keep you in touch and engaged. While studying, you are encouraged to post questions, comments, share your interpretations, and seek help or confirmation through TECU’s Facebook page, UNTCI’s Facebook page, or use the Student Forum Blog
