Registration is now open for the summer 2019 session.
It’s important to note that each of the courses for the summer require attendance at multiple weekends to complete the needed 36 classroom contact hours. You must plan to participate in the full class to receive credit. An hour or so absence can be negotiated with the instructor.
Class locations will be determined April 1, and will be based on the locations of the students who have registered at that point. Those registering later will have to plan to participate at the selected locations.
We do not offer an on-line option as we are committed to classroom experiences. If the distance to class requires to you secure lodging, we will assist with this.
You may register for the class by printing out and mailing or emailing the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also fill out an online registration and mail only your payment to MTI. When the registration is received, a confirmation and syllabus will be sent.
You can access syllabi for the courses beginning March 5 at this link or on the Facebook page, ERC Ministry Training Institute.
All registrations are due no later than one week before the start of the class.
Please note that we offered Churches of God History last summer and are offering it this summer. IT WILL NOT BE OFFERED NEXT SUMMER. If Credentialing and Placement has indicated that completion of this course is necessary to your credentialing YOU NEED TO ARRANGE YOUR SUMMER SCHEDULE to participate or you will have to wait until Summer 2021.
Courses are open to Ministry Enrichment Students for credit or audit and to pastors for continuing education (audit fee).
