Bible & Ministry


Equip offers two certificates of completion: Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry. The Biblical Studies certificate recognizes 18 hours of study in textual Bible. The Christian Ministry certificate recognizes at least 24 hours of credit with a concentration on congregational ministry and evangelism. Both certificates are designed for continuing education for ministers, deacons, teachers, elders and anyone else who desires to continue their studies at the collegiate level. All courses are for credit and may be rolled into Bible degree programs.

Bachelor degrees may only be earned from the College of Bible & Ministry upon completion of all requirements of the college and Harding University. Although the College of Bible & Ministry offers more than one certificate, students are limited to one certificate from the college. We would love to provide you with more EQUIP information or help you through the Enrollment process.
