Encounter: Certificate in Bible
Ground your faith through a well-rounded introductory program of biblical studies, Christian theology, spiritual formation, and arts and science courses. Our Encounter program provides a solid foundation for anyone seeking to influence this diverse world for Christ.
Who is this for?
If you are undecided on a career or ministry path or plan to pursue further education in a secular environment, the training you receive through Prairie’s Certificate in Bible program will prepare you to make wise decisions based on a solid biblical perspective. Although complete in itself, our Certificate in Bible program has also been designed as a starting point for our two and four-year programs since CB credits can be applied to most of these longer programs.
All courses are three credits unless shown otherwise.
Bible & Theology (18 credits)
Note: Arts & Sciences courses include Anthropology (AN), Humanity and Fine Arts (HF), History (HI), Philosophy (PH), Psychology (PS), Science (SC), Sociology (SO), and Social Sciences (SS).
General Electives (6 credits)
Timeframe & Fees
