Asbury Institutes offers certificate programs designed to meet you at your season of life with a transformational next step. Essential to the Asbury Institutes experience is formational learning coupled with practical education. Certificate programs center around a specific discipline. We have launched or are developing Institutes across a wide range of disciplines including Lay Mobilization, Church Planting, Counseling and Pastoral Care, Campus Ministry, Anglican Formation, Wesleyan Leadership, and Discipleship. We hope you will join us in this transforming next step. Institutes are intentionally flexible with an emphasis on experiential and practical learning. With three distinct layers of certificates, you will find something for everyone.

  • Foundational certificates – designed to equip you with just the training you need.  These certificates consist of 5 modules completed in 10 months and cannot be transferred into a graduate degree. These certificates are delivered both online and in retreat based formats.
  • Missional Certificates – These certificates invite leaders and teams into coached and mentored processes to lead change in their environments. These certificates are delivered face to face and the length can vary. 
  • Professional Certificates – these Certificates consist of 5 Masters level courses already offered at Asbury Theological Seminary. Learn more information about our Professional level certificates.

Leadership Institute

The Asbury Leadership Institute provides a pathway for the formation of lay leaders, pastors, and pastoral staff who want to sharpen their leadership skills and is designed with practitioners in mind. Each module is taught by academically and experientially qualified faculty and professionals who equip leaders to live into their call to Christ-like leadership in the midst of the challenges of our 21st Century context.

Church Planting

In the ever-changing world around us, church leaders must be able to analyze and adapt to increasingly multicultural, secular, and global contexts. Designed for church planters and their teams, the Asbury Church Planting Institute seeks to help others join in God’s mission by offering affordable and non-residential training that enables leaders to study while remaining in the context of their current ministry.
