The Certificate in Spiritual Leadership (Chicago Church of Christ) is a 21-hour (seven course) program providing quality training in Biblical studies and ministry in partnership with the Chicago Church of Christ.

Harding School of Theology will offer nine graduate-level courses locally over a three year period. Students will complete five core courses and any two of the four non-core courses to earn the certificate. Courses meet one weekend per month for three months.

Admission into the Certificate program requires an undergraduate degree in any subject from an accredited institution. To apply, visit HST.edu/apply.

Students who wish to continue beyond the Certificate and have an appropriate GPA will have the option of applying all seven courses toward a Master of Arts in Christian Ministry (a 54 hour degree) or a Master of Divinity (a 78 hour degree) at HST, pending application and admission.

Students without an undergraduate degree may audit these courses. Auditors completing all required work will earn a certificate of completion from the CCC.

These courses are offered at a special tuition rate of $700 per course + fees. This represents a 60% tuition grant. See the catalog for more information about tuition and fees. Auditors will pay $75 per course.
