The application window for the 2017-2018 Ministry Essentials Cohort is now OPEN.

To be effective in ministry, there are a few things you need to have.

The Ministry Essentials Cohort will give you the foundation for ministry that you have always wanted. With courses in: Bible, theology, human development, communication, soul tending, and more, you will be prepared for the ministry to which God has called you.

Utilizing a cohort model, the Ministry Essentials Certificate is a two-year program that prepares women and men to begin ministry and sharpens the tools, theory, and practice of those already ministering so that ministers and missionaries can serve God’s Kingdom better.

The Sonoran Theological Group is committed to providing practical preparation for ministry through the Ministry Essentials Program to ministers, missionaries, and the laity within the church for service to His Kingdom. Beginning in February 2017, the second Ministry Essentials cohort will begin.
