Our Program

The School of Women in Ministry is a two-year program that features six days of face to face instruction (three classes per year; one Saturday in the autumn, winter and spring). Each day consists of two three-hour classes taught by well-qualified instructors. Pre-course reading and assignments, as well as follow-up assignments, augment the teaching time.

Each student, using what she has learned, is expected to formulate and complete an internship in her local church (or an approved para-church organization). This project is planned and approved by the end of the first year and completed in the second year under the supervision of her pastor, or someone of his (or her) choosing. For women desiring additional study an honours program is available. It is noteworthy that women who choose to complete the honours program find the extra effort helps release their potential and focus their passion for service.
