Fruitland: Equipping You for Christian Leadership


This highly rated Certificate Program consists of 16 rotating classes. This program provides practical ministry training for anyone desiring to grow in their faith and be better equipped to serve the Lord. Not just for ministers, it is ideal for Sunday School Teachers and Small Group Leaders, and Church Leaders serving in any ministry capacity. You can take one course, specific courses of interest, or complete the entire 2-year program. But I must warn any prospective student that these classes can be addictive. In this program, the student focuses on one class at a time. Each class meets on Monday evenings (6pm – 9pm) for 5 weeks in addition to homework and testing. The next two Summer Term Courses will be in July and August. Contact the association for more information.
