The Certificate in Congregational Leadership (CCL) Program, offered in partnership with Pecometh Camp and Retreat Ministries, combines workshop and online learning in a comprehensive approach to developing leadership excellence in the local church. It is designed to accommodate the busy schedule of the bi-vocational pastor and certified lay minister. The program is comprised of the following elements:
1. A weekend retreat focused on two foundational elements: leadership through self-differentiation and preaching.
2. Six different online courses: three required, and three elective. Participants must complete the three required courses and at least one elective course for certificate completion. Each course takes place during a seven-day period and requires approximately (10) hours of work, all but two of which can be done independently. There are two, one-hour online sessions in which participants cover course material together.
