Diploma in Christian Studies: Children’s Ministry Track
We firmly believe that strong skills in theology, teaching, leadership and children’s spiritual formation make for competent and capable children’s ministers.
The Diploma in Christian Studies (DCS), offered through ACTS Seminaries, sets aside 9 semester hours for a specialization and 9 hours for personal interest classes. Through our unique relationship with the Centre for Ministry Excellence of ACTS Seminaries and Trinity Western University, you can complete their 12 credit Executive Certificate in Children’s Ministry at a masters level, and upon fulfilling DCS requirements, graduate with a specialization in Church Ministries: Children’s Ministry Track.
We believe our degree is unique in Canada, focusing all 12 credit hours on Children’s Ministry specifically.
